§ SIR H. DRUMMOND WOLFF
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs a Question of which I have not been able to give Notice, Whether there is any truth in the report that the French have taken possession of the New Hebrides?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
I have received a private Notice of a similar Question from an hon. Member opposite. No information has been received at the Foreign Office; but I may say that it is probable that information 611 would arrive in the first instance at the Colonial Office; and, having communicated with the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, I have his authority to state that no information on the subject has been received.
