HC Deb 15 May 1882 vol 269 c665

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether any determination has been come to affecting the future position of Cetewayo; and, whether he is shortly to visit this country?


Sir Henry Bulwer having informed Her Majesty's Government that the report of Cetewayo's intended visit to this country has been used for purposes of intrigue and agitation in Zululand, and that his visit at the present time would interfere with the consideration of the future policy to be pursued in that country, Her Majesty's Government have felt themselves compelled to postpone it. With reference to the other part of the Question, no decision has been come to as to any change in his position.
