§ MR. HEDDERWICK
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government have abandoned the treaty rights of this country with Madagascar; and, if not, whether the Government have made any effort of late to procure the recognition of these rights by France.
§ * MR. BRODRICK
Her Majesty's Government have in no way abandoned their view as to the obligations of France towards this country in regard to Madagascar, but no representations have been recently made on the subject.
