HC Deb 07 February 1893 vol 8 c676
MR. J. W. LOWTHER (Cumberland, Penrith)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Despatch of the 10th December, 1892, from Lord Rosebery to Sir Gerald Portal, appearing upon page 50, of Africa, No.1 (1893), was telegraphed to Sir Gerald Portal in full, or whether a summary only was sent by telegram; and if the latter, will he communicate to the House the terms of such summary?


The Instructions Were taken to Zanzibar by Mr. Rodd, who delivered them to Sir Gerald Portal personally. Sir Gerald sailed for the mainland as soon as he had received them.
