§ MR. BOWYER
begged to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, whether the sum of 23,707l. 10s. 10d., which, by certain Parliamentary returns was stated to have been paid to Monsieur Ladebat, a French subject, out of the "French Indemnity Fund;" had ever, and when, been returned to that fund, and if so, whether Her Majesty's Government had any objection to lay upon the table of the House a return showing the application thereof?
§ MR. WILSON
said, that a sum of 23,707l. out of the French Indemnity Fund had been paid to M. Ladebat, a French subject; that payment was made under clauses of the treaty of 1815; the money had not been repaid, nor did he see any reason why it should be repaid. He had no objection to the production of any papers connected with the subject.
