HC Deb 14 November 1882 vol 274 c1403

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether there is any truth in the statement published in the "Times" of the 13th instant, that the policy of Her Majesty's Government in Egypt was constantly opposed by Signor Mancini, and also by Count Corti, the Italian Ambassador in Constantinople?


In reply to the first portion of the hon. Baronet's Question, I cannot do better than refer him specially to the Reports of Sir Alfred Paget, recorded in "Egypt," No. 17, pages 44, 72, 119, 153, 242, and 342, and in "Egypt," No. 18, pages 19 and 21. With regard to the Italian Ambassador at Constantinople, I may add that Lord Dufferin's Reports have always shown that the action of Count Corti has been of the most friendly nature.
