§ MR. HUTTON (Manchester, N.)
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether Her Majesty's Consul at Zanzibar has communicated any information relative to further annexations made by Europeans since November 1885, on the Zanzibar Coast or in Eastern Africa; and, when further Correspondence with Her Majesty's Government on this subject will be presented to Parliament?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. BRYCE) (Aberdeen, S.)
No European Government has assumed the protectorate of any territory since the date named by the hon. Member, and it is understood that no annexations will be made while the Delimitation Commission is sitting. It is not proposed to present further Correspondence until after the Commission has finished its work.
