§ MR. LEES KNOWLES (Salford, W.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the gist of the Report received from Her Majesty's Ambassador at St. Petersburg with regard to the murder of Mr. Joseph Crawshaw, to which reference was made on 30th May?
§ *SIR E. GREY
A despatch has been received from the Acting British Consul at Moscow confirming the Report which appeared in the newspapers of the attack on the mills at the Tikoso, near Moscow, and the murder of Mr. Crawshaw by the mob. Her Majesty's Ambassador at St. Petersburg has been assured by the Russian Government that a full inquiry will be held, and that measures were being taken by the local authorities to prevent further disorders.
