§ CAPTAIN CRAIG (Down, E)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has yet received a reply from the Russian Government to his application for compensation to Mr. Luxenburg for wrongful arrest and imprisonment; and whether, in view of the serious harm occasioned Mr. Luxenburg, he will respectfully press for a satisfactory settlement of his claim.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. MCKINNON WOOD,) Glasgow, St. Rollox
The reply of the Russian Government has been received. They admit no responsibility as of right, but intimate that some compensation may be accorded in an unofficial manner, and as an act of grace. Mr. Luxenburg is being communicated with on the subject.
