HC Deb 17 February 1879 vol 243 c1310

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether the text of a French Circular Despatch, bearing date October 21, and relating to the carrying out of the suggestions adopted by the Berlin Congress for settlement of the Greek-Turkish differences is correctly given in "The Times" of January 10; whether, in the event of such Despatch having been received, he will lay it without delay upon the Table; and, whether he will at the same time communicate the reply of Her Majesty's Government to that French Despatch?


Yes, Sir; the text of the French despatch given by The Times is correct in all material points. As negotiations are still in progress, it is not possible, at any rate at present, to lay Papers on the Table.
