HC Deb 04 March 1897 vol 46 c1592
MR. H. BROADHURST (Leicester)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is in a position to make a statement to the House as to the negotiations between this country and Belgium relating to the recent imprisonment of Mr. Ben Tillett?


The Belgian Government have agreed to the suggestion of Her Majesty's Government that the claim for compensation put forward by the latter in the case of Mr. Tillett should be referred to arbitration.
