§ MR. BAZLEY
said, in the absence of his hon. Friend (Mr. Turner) he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether Her Majesty's Government have received from the British Charge d' Affaires in Peru any communication in reference to the recent robbery and murder in open day, at Lima, of Captain Lambert, of H.M.S. Vixen; and, if so, whether any steps have been taken by Her Majesty's Government in relation thereto?
§ LORD JOHN RUSSELL
said, it appeared that it was a murder committed solely for the purpose of robbery, that it bore no political character whatever, and that the Government of Lima were using their best exertions to detect the perpetrators.
