§ MR. FELL
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, if the ransom paid to the Turkish brigands for the release of Mr. Abbott has been repaid by the Turkish Government; and, if not, when it is expected it will be repaid.
§ SIR EDWARD GREY
The culprits have been arrested, and a considerable part of the ransom recovered, and I have every reason to hope that a satisfactory settlement of the question will be reached. But I am unable to say more than this at present.
