HC Deb 12 March 1880 vol 251 c914

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to interfere, either in conjunction with the other Great Powers, or without such co-operation, to compel the Bulgarian Government to fulfil the conditions of the Treaty of Berlin, signed on the 13th July 1878, so far as it relates to the Varna Railway Company?


Sir, Her Majesty's Government have been in communication with the Government of the Principality upon this question; and Her Majesty's Diplomatic Agent at Bucharest has given, and will continue to give, the utmost assistance in his power to procure a full execution by the Bulgarian Government of the stipulations contained in the Treaty. They trust, and there is every reason to believe, that the Government of the Prince is animated by an earnest desire scrupulously to execute his obligations in that respect.
