57. Mr. BECKETT
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the despatch of the British cruiser "Colombo" to the shores of Nicaragua has been effected with his concurrence; and what communication, if any, passed between him and the Government of Nicaragua prior to such despatch?
The answer to the first part is in the affirmative. His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires received instructions to notify the Nicaraguan Government in the ordinary manner of the projected arrival of His Majesty's Ship in Nicaraguan waters.
