HC Deb 27 May 1892 vol 5 cc49-50
MR. TIMOTHY HEALY (Longford, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the engagements or undertakings given to the Holy See as to the Maltese Marriage Law and the other matters broached by Sir Lintorn Simmons at the Vatican have been fulfilled, or has any remonstrance been received by Her Majesty's Government as to their non-fulfilment?

MR. WOODALL (Hanley)

Will the hon. Gentleman also say whether anything has been done to enable British subjects in Malta to contract marriages under the Act of last Session?


May I ask the hon. Gentleman if he will postpone his question till Monday. I have not yet been able to obtain the necessary information, but I will undertake to give him an answer on Monday.


I suppose there will be no objection to postpone the Vote on Account till Monday also?


I will endeavour to get the answer down from the office as soon as I can, and if the hon. Member wishes to have this information before the Vote on Account I will communicate it privately before the Vote comes on.


I am satisfied.
