§ MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether Her Majesty's Government instructed their Agents in Bulgaria to use their influence with the Regents against excessive severity in dealing with the insurgents; whether the British Government took any stops with a view to prevent the recent wholesale executions in Bulgaria; and, whether the Foreign Office has received any communications from the Russian Government on this subject?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) (Manchester, N.E.)
Her Majesty's Government gave no instructions to their Agents in Bulgaria to interfere with the Regents in the execution of their duties. Her Majesty's Government have received no communication from the Russian Government on the subject.
§ MR. DILLON
That is not answering my Question. I said nothing about duty, but about undue severity.
