HC Deb 28 July 1890 vol 347 c1069

I beg to ask the Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs a question of which I have given him private notice—whether he can give the House any information as to the revolution at Buenos Ayres?


I do not know that I can add anything to what has previously appeared in the public papers, but this telegram was received to-day. It is dated Buenos Ayres, 6.45 p.m., July 27:— Revolution still proceeding. Heavy firing this morning. Four men-of-war declared for insurgents, and bombarded position belonging to Government troops. President left Buenos Ayres yesterday. Vice President remains Hostilities have temporarily ceased, armistice until 10 to-morrow morning having been agreed to. Her Majesty's ships Beagle and Bramble here. Town tolerably quiet for the moment.
