HC Deb 05 May 1890 vol 344 c135

I have given notice of my intention to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is true that the survivors of the slaves with which the Stanley expedition was manned, and which were originally hired from Arab and other owners at Zanzibar, have been handed over to their original owners, and returned into slavery at Zanzibar; and whether it is a fact that the wages they earned on the Expedition have been appropriated by their owners; but at the request of the right hon. Gentleman I will postpone the question.
