HC Deb 02 May 1889 vol 335 c995
MR. W. REDMOND (Fermanagh, N)

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether it was true that Dinizulu had been sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment; and, if so, whether the Government, in consequence of Dinizulu having voluntarily surrendered himself, could see their way to mitigate this sentence; and whether all the papers in connection with the trial would be laid before Parliament.


As I stated on the 30th of April, this sentence has been passed. When the Secretary of State reviews the case, as he will do when the record of evidence is complete, the circumstance referred to by the hon. Member in the first paragraph of his question, will be considered with all other material circumstances in the case. When all the papers have been received in full and reported upon there will probably be no objection to laying them before Parliament, but the Secretary of State would prefer not to give a decided answer until he has received them.
