§ MR. HEYWOOD JOHNSTONE (Sussex, Horsham)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if Charles James Daintry, a British subject, who was arrested by the Italian police on the 30th January, and lodged in. prison at Venice on an extradition warrant, has yet been surrendered; and, if not, whether he can state the cause of the delay?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (MR. GEORGE CURZON,) Lancashire, Southport
Her Majesty's Ambassador at Rome reports that the delay in the surrender of Daintry has been occasioned by the necessity of translating the lengthy documents sent to the Italian Government in support of the application for the prisoner's extradition. The Italian Minister of Justice has taken the necessary measures to obviate any further delay in the matter.
