HC Deb 10 March 1879 vol 244 c518

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether there are any documents in the India Office not yet presented to Parliament relating to the Treaty of 1854, made by General John Jacob with the Khan of Khelat; also the 1855 Treaty made with Dost Mahomed; also relating to the proposal made to Lord Canning in 1856 by General John Jacob to advance beyond the Bolan Pass; and, whether these Papers, or a selection thereof, can be laid upon the Table of the House?


Sir, there are a vast number of documents relating to the period mentioned by the hon. and gallant Member. So far as I have had time to examine them, I have not found any which appear to be of sufficient interest to lay upon the Table, especially as the views and opinions of General John Jacob are already well known.
