§ MR. JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can afford any information concerning the kidnapping of the crew of a Belfast steamship, the Bawnmore, on the 21st ultimo, at Nanaimo, British Columbia, and whether any steps have been taken to punish the perpetrators of the outrage, either by the Canadian or Imperial Government?
§ SIR E. GREY
No sufficient information has yet been received concerning this ship. If the hon. Member will postpone his question for a few days I will endeavour to obtain information.
