HC Deb 07 May 1913 vol 52 cc2062-3W

asked the Secretary for Foreign Affairs if a claim for compensation has been made to the Brazilian Government on behalf of the relatives of the late Mr. A. N. Romany, a British subject, an accountant in the employ of Messrs. Griffith, Williams, and Johnson, Pernambuco, who was shot by soldiers during an election riot on 28th November, 1911; and, if so, with what result?


His Majesty's Minister at Rio in a Note dated 24th April, 1912, presented to the Brazilian Government the claim of Messrs. Griffith, Williams, and Johnson for compensation for the death of Mr. Romany. No reply has at present been received from the Brazilian Government, but their attention will be again drawn to the matter.
