I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Supreme Court of Buenos Ayres has ordered the extradition of Jabez Balfour; and whether Jabez Balfour is yet in the custody of an officer of Her Majesty's Government.

We are informed that the Supreme Court dismissed the final appeal, and that the British Police Officer was starting in charge of Balfour on board the Tartar Prince. I desire to take this opportunity of expressing satisfaction, which I am sure will be shared by the House, at the friendly conduct of the Argentine Government in fulfilling the Treaty obligations which now exist between the two Governments.
