HC Deb 23 March 1882 vol 267 c1662

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether there is any foundation for the report circulated in the military newspapers, that Sir Charles Ellice, the present Adjutant General, is to succeed General Napier, of Magdala, as Governor of Gibraltar, the present occupant?


No, Sir; I have heard nothing on this subject. Lord Napier does not vacate the government of Gibraltar until next October, and Lord Kimberley has not spoken to me about the choice of a successor.
