§ MR. NORMAN (Wolverhampton, S)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether Great Britain, through her Ambassadors, ever proposed a Joint Note in which the Powers should declare that Europe did not regard the armed intervention of the United States in Cuba as justifiable, and whether, in consequence of the refusal of Germany this step was abandoned; and whether he can make any further statement upon the subject.
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord CRANBORNE,) Rochester
No. Great Britain never proposed through Her Majesty's Ambassadors or otherwise any declaration adverse to the United States in regard to their intervention in Cuba. On the contrary Her Majesty's Government declined to assent to any such proposal.
