HL Deb 10 March 1842 vol 61 cc410-1
The Marquess of Clanricarde,

seeing the noble Earl the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, would beg to put a question to him on a matter which, in his opinion, did not require any previous notice. He observed that the despatch from the noble Earl to our Ambassador at Paris, a copy of which had been laid on the Table by command of her Majesty, was dated the 28th of January; but he saw by the public papers that since that date the subject of the despatch had been noticed in the French Chambers. The question which he wished to ask the noble Earl was, whether he had since received any official reply to it from the French Government?

The Earl of Aberdeen:

None whatever.
