HC Deb 02 August 1883 vol 282 cc1335-6

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, What stops, if any, have been taken by Her Majesty's Government in the matter of the extradition of Mr. Sheridan; and if it is convenient to inform the House as to the progress, or the result of their negotiations thereupon, with the Government of the United States? Before the Question was answered, he wished to express a hope that the noble Lord would bear in mind a recent startling occurrence. [Cries of "Order!"]


Her Majesty's Government do not think it would be for the advantage of the Public Service that any official statement with regard to this case should be made at present.
