HC Deb 13 March 1896 vol 38 c886
MR. R. McKENNA (Monmouth, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign affairs whether he has any information as to the statement that the Colombian Government has notified the British Minister, Mr. Jenner, that he will not in future be recognised as the representative of Great Britain; and whether such notification, if it has been made, has been stated by the Colombian Government to be due to any defect in tone or temper on the part of Mr. Jenner in the conduct of diplomatic correspondence?


Mr. Jenner has telegraphed to us somewhat in the sense indicated in the first paragraph of the question. Her Majesty's Government have, however, as yet received no notification from the Colombian Government either of the fact or of the alleged causes of it mentioned in the second paragraph.
