HC Deb 13 June 1879 vol 246 cc1810-1

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether the Government have laid before Parliament all the information which has been received concerning the overtures for peace which have been made by Cetewavo?


Sir, in reply to a previous Question from the hon. Baronet, I think on Mon- day last, I informed the House of all I knew as to the nature of the latest overtures made by Cetywayo and the terms of the reply sent by Lord Chelmsford. In a despatch received from Sir Bartle Frere within the last few days, I believe there are some inclosures relating to earlier overtures, which will be presented to the House on the first opportunity.
