MR. JOSEPH COWEN
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If he can furnish the House with any information respecting the Treaty alleged to have been completed between the Governments of Peru and Chili?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
Sir, Her Majesty's Government have reason to believe that the news which has recently appeared of the conclusion of a Convention between the Chilian Government and General Iglesias is correct; but they have no official intelligence. As, however, the authority of General Iglesias is not undisputed, it would be premature to assume that the Convention will lead to the restoration of peace between Chili and Peru.
