HC Deb 25 May 1880 vol 252 cc434-5

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he proposes to lay upon the Table of the House the instructions given to Mr. Goschen; and, if so, when?


The instructions given to Mr. Goschen are not yet completed, because we are waiting for the answers of certain Powers whose concerted action has been invited. Those answers are expected to be received in a short time; and we shall then, I hope, be in a condition to lay Papers on the Table, including the instructions to Mr. Goschen.
