§ MR. A. ROSS
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whe- 1052 ther the women and children captured by Osman Digna at Sinkat have been rescued from slavery; and, if not, whether the Government are still continuing their efforts to attain that object; and, whether any Papers on the subject will be shortly laid upon the Table of the House?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
The authorities have received instructions to do all they can in this matter. At the same time, I cannot give any great hopes as to the result. The hon. Member will find what has passed on the subject in the Papers just laid before Parliament.
