HC Deb 01 March 1905 vol 142 cc14-5
MR. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the later despatches of the Secretary of State since August to foreign countries, especially to France, Italy, and Austria relating to Macedonia and the necessary reforms, will be presented shortly to Parliament.


It is impossible to lay Papers relating to negotiations which are still in progress, but any information which can be made public will be presented without delay.


Will the despatches in question be found inconsistent with the noble Lord's speech the other night?


I do not think the hon. Member will find any inconsistency, but he had better wait till the despatches are laid.
