HC Deb 08 February 1881 vol 258 cc337-8

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether he will request the Governor of Natal to send to the Colonial Office an official report of the interviews which his predecessor and the Native Secretary of that Colony had with a large deputation of Zulu Chiefs in the month of May, 1880; and, whether he will lay upon the Table any reports concerning the state of affairs in Zululand which he may have received from Mr. Osborne, the British Resident in that territory?


Sir, in reply to the first part of my hon. Friend's Question, I have to say that we will do as he wishes. In reply to the second, I have to say that I have laid on the Table all these Reports except one, which will be included in the next batch of South African Papers.
