HC Deb 07 July 1902 vol 110 c932
MR. SEYMOUR ORMSBY - GORE (Lincolnshire, Gainsborough)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will state what representations have been made by His Majesty's Government to the Argentine Republic with respect to the murder of Mr. William Barnett by the Argentine police, and what guarantees will the Argentine Government give for the security of British subjects in the Republic.


His Majesty's Charge d'Affaires at Buenos Ayres has been instructed to inquire into the matter. He will furnish a Report on the facts and on the steps which have been taken in order to bring the guilty parties to justice. We must wait for that Report before any further action is taken.
