HC Deb 19 May 1879 vol 246 c695

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether any information other than that which has already appeared in the newspapers has reached the Foreign Office respecting the war now going on between Chili and Peru; and, whether any intervention by way of mediation is possible on the part of Her Majesty's Government?


Sir, the information which has been received at the Foreign Office is similar to that which has appeared in the public journals. Her Majesty's Government have tendered to both belligerents their good offices, with the view to a settlement of their disputes.
