§ MR. BAZLEY
(in the absence of Captain Gray) said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether he will recommend that an English Consul be appointed to the City of Lyons, in accordance with the suggestions contained in the Letter of the hon. Mr. Howard, Secretary to the British Embassy at Paris, dated the 22nd day of September 1857?
§ LORD JOHN RUSSELL
said, he had not received any application from British subjects connected with Lyons desiring any change from the present state of things; and as he was unwilling to increase the public charge no such appointment would for the present be made.
