HC Deb 25 March 1895 vol 32 cc46-7
MR. C. J. DARLING (Deptford)

I would like to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now in a position to give the House any further information concerning the prospects of the extradition of Mr. Jabez Balfour. The Under Secretary will recollect that when I last brought this matter before the House he expressed a wish to give this information as soon as he had received it?


I was not aware the hon. Gentleman was going to ask a question on this subject. If he will give me notice I will get all the information that I can.


I did not give notice because I understood that the hon. Baronet said he desired to give an answer on the subject as soon as ever he obtained the information. I merely gave him the opportunity.


I will only just say that I could take advantage of the opportunity much better, more completely, and with greater satisfaction to everybody if I was given notice of the question.
