§ MR. MONTAGUE GUEST
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether Her Majesty's Government are in possession of any information with regard to the alleged conflict which is stated to have taken place between French and Moorish troops on the borders of Morocco?
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
Sir, Her Majesty's Minister in Morocco reported in December and January that information had reached him that a French force had entered the district of Figuig, in the Empire of Morocco, and, after engaging in hostilities with the Arab tribes there, had retired into Algeria. The fact was, however, denied by the French Government, who were questioned on the subject by Her Majesty's Ambassador in Paris, and has not been confirmed.
