§ MR. OSBORNE MORGAN (Denbighshire, E.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is now in possession of any further information respecting the repulse lately suffered by the Colonial Police Forces before Tambi, in West Africa; and whether it is true, as stated by the Central News, that the Government is organising a fresh expedition against the place?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Baron H. DE WORMS, Liverpool, East Toxteth)
Despatches on the subject reached the Colonial Office this morning, but they only describe the attack that took place on Tambi. The acting Governor proposed to renew the attack with the aid of the native contingent as I stated on the 23rd ult. It will necessarily take some little time to make the necessary arrangements, and no further news has yet been received. The only European killed was Captain Robinson.
