§ MR. BUCHANAN
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, When the Order in Council with regard to British Consular Jurisdiction on the West Coast of Africa, promised on the 24th of July last, will be laid upon the Table; and, whether the subject with which it deals, namely, the facilitating of the apprehension of criminals outside the boundaries of European settlements in that part of the world, will be brought before the West African Conference?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
There have been unavoidable delays in the preparation of the Order, but it is hoped it may be issued at an early meeting of the Privy Council. The subject with which it deals is not one of those for the consideration of which the Conference is summoned.
