HC Deb 12 April 1883 vol 278 c64

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If the British Representative at the recent Danubian Conference voted for the admission of the Roumanian Plenipotentiary with full powers to vote and speak on the questions under deliberation?


Sir, there was no formal vote or division upon any of the questions which came before the Conference. If the hon. Member will refer to the Papers which have been laid on the Table, he will see, at page 19 of Danube No. 1, the circular-despatch in which Lord Granville proposed to admit Roumania to the Conference, on the same footing as the Powers signatories of the Treaty of Berlin; and, at page 11 of Danube No. 2, he will see the speech of Earl Granville on the same subject, expressing the same views.
