HC Deb 17 March 1891 vol 351 c1234
MR. CHANNING, for Sir WALTER FOSTER (Derby, Ilkeston)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether King Ja Ja has been removed from St. Vincent to Barbados; whether his servants refused to accompany him, and consequently caused him great inconvenience and annoyance; whether his wife also declined to be transported to Barbados; and whether, considering that it: is now some seven months since he was informed that it was Her Majesty's gracious will and pleasure to order his release and re-conveyance to Opobo, he can fix a date for his return to his own country?


The Governor of Barbados telegraphed on the 11th inst that Ja Ja had arrived much improved in health. We have not heard any particulars. It is impossible to say at what date the political situation at Opobo will admit of his return. He will be sent back as soon as the circumstances are sufficiently favourable.
