MR. J. W. LOWTHER (Cumberland, Penrith)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any communication has yet been received from the French Government in explanation of the so-called "Warina" incident in West Africa; and, if so, whether he can state the purport of it to the House?
§ SIR E. GREY
The French Government have informed us that they have called for information from their officers. Meanwhile, their Consul at Sierra Leone is about to examine, in concert with the British Authorities, wounded Senegalese who came to the coast with the British force.
