HC Deb 07 June 1883 vol 279 c1903

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether the further Report promised by Sir Samuel Rowe upon the state of affairs in Ashantee has been received; and, whether Papers upon this subject will soon be presented to the House?


Sir, the further despatch from Sir Samuel Rowe, to which I referred in my Answer the other day, has arrived; but it does not contain so full a report as was expected, because Sir Samuel Rowe, as he informs us, has sent Captain Barrow and Inspector Kirby to Coomassie to inquire on the spot into the state of things. However, Papers up to the latest date connected with this question will be at once laid on the Table.
