HC Deb 05 August 1890 vol 347 c1905
MR. SAMUEL SMITH (Flintshire)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government has entered into negotiations with France respecting Madagascar; and, if so, whether they will give the House an opportunity of pronouncing a judgment before concluding a Treaty on the subject?


I must ask the hon. Member to postpone the question until Thursday. I think I shall then be able to give him a more satisfactory answer than I could give him to-day.
