HC Deb 15 February 1872 vol 209 c469

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether Doctor Livingstone does not hold Consular rank under Her Majesty's Government; if so, what territory is included in his jurisdiction; and, whether his present expedition was undertaken with the concurrence and approval of Her Majesty's Government?


Dr. Livingstone was in March, 1865, appointed Her Majesty's Consul in the territories of the African Kings and Chiefs in the interior of Africa, embracing the district between the 5th degree of north and the 5th degree of south latitude, and the object of his appointment was, among other things, to inquire into the resources of that country.
