HC Deb 12 June 1890 vol 345 cc715-6
MR. MURDOCH (Reading)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any proposal has been received from the Portuguese Government, offering to submit to the arbitration of certain European nations the question of the Delagoa Bay Railway Company?


A joint proposal of that character has been made by Her Majesty's Government and the Government of the United States, America to the Government of Portugal, who have accepted it in principle.
