§ MR. CUNNINGHAME GRAHAM (Lanark, N.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, if be has had the case of Kaide Silva (British subject), of Tangiers, Morocco, under his consideration; whether £200 compensation was given to another British subject, an Artillery instructor; owing to the representation of Her Majesty's Minister in Morocco, on the occasion of the dismissal of Kaide Silva and the British subject referred to; whether, since Kaide Suva's dismissal, a German has been engaged at the instance of the German Government in his stead: and, if any complaint was ever brought against Silva by the authorities of Morocco?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir J. FERGUSSON,) Manchester, N.E.
Nothing has been heard at the Foreign Office of this affair, which, as far as appears, does not appear to concern Her Majesty's Government.
In reply to a further question by Mr. CUNNINGHAME GRAHAM,
§ SIR J. FERGUSSON said
Unless there was some breach of contract between the Government of Morocco and a British subject, we should have no ground for interference.
