HC Deb 23 June 1873 vol 216 c1247

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether a Treaty reported to have been received and signed by the Sultan of Zanzibar on the subject of the East African Slave Trade, is the Treaty offered to the Sultan under instruction from the Foreign Office by Sir Bartle Frere, or whether it differs in any important particular from that Treaty?


Sir, no Copy of the Treaty as signed has yet been received at the Foreign Office; but Dr. Kirk reports that it contains a stipulation, of which he was directed to obtain the insertion, with a view of making the Treaty as originally presented to the Sultan of Zanzibar by Sir Bartle Frere more effectual for the object for which it was concluded.
