§ SIR GEORGE BOWYER
asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether it is true that the nobility of Malta were not permitted to present an address to the Prince of Wales on his arrival in Malta, and that for this reason they refrained from taking part in the reception of His Royal Highness; and, whether Her Majesty's Government will make an inquiry on the subject, with a view to give satisfaction to the Maltese nobles?
§ MR. J. LOWTHER
Sir, no information has as yet been received upon the subject referred to by the hon. Baronet, but inquiry will be made as to the facts of the case.
