HC Deb 07 June 1883 vol 279 c1908

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether Colonel Maceo is now treated with the consideration due to his rank, or whether it is true that he is kept under lock and key during the twenty-four hours of the day; and, whether Her Majesty's Government intend to make any further representations to the Spanish Government with a view to securing the absolute liberation of Colonel Maceo?


Sir, Her Majesty's Government hare quite recently received renewed assurances, in reply to inquiries on their part, that Colonel Maceo is treated as a prisoner of war of superior military rank. Papers will be laid on the Table.
