HL Deb 06 August 1844 vol 76 c1787
Lord Beaumont

repeated a question which he had put on a former evening, as to the restoration of two Ministers by the Porte, on an assumed understanding with Prince Alexander Georgeowitch.

The Earl of Aberdeen

in answer to the question of the noble Lord, wished to state that he had no knowledge whatever of any such engagement as that referred to by the noble Lord, nor had he any reason to know or to believe that any such promise had been made as the noble Lord had mentioned. But though he had no knowledge or belief of any such engagements, it might be satisfactory to the noble Lord to learn, that, from a recent communication received from Her Majesty's Minister at the Court of St. Petersburg, the Imperial Government had no objection whatever to the return of the two Ministers referred to.

Lord Beaumont

was perfectly satisfied with the answer of the noble Earl. He must have been misled by his information.
