HC Deb 15 August 1882 vol 273 cc1826-7

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether Her Majesty's Government has taken steps to discover and bring to justice the murderers of Mr. James Taylor Pose, assassinated in Peru on 26th July 1881; and, if so, whether those steps have been attended with success?


The murder of Mr. James Taylor Rose has occupied the attention of Her Majesty's Minister at Lima for some time past; but, owing to that part of the country where Mr. Rose was assassinated being entirely in the hands of guerillas, no successful result has as yet been arrived at. The matter, however, is still engaging the attention of the Legation at Lima.
