§ MR. RITCHIE
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the attention of the Government has been called to a paragraph in a newspaper to the effect that a firm in Whitechapel is manufacturing arms for shipment to the Zulus; and whether they are in possession of any information on the subject?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
The attention of the Government has been drawn to this statement, and inquiries are being made. I do not think it would be advantageous to make any further statement on the subject at present.
