HC Deb 08 April 1895 vol 32 c1139
SIR T. ESMONDE (Kerry, W.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Queen Liliokuolani is kept a prisoner in a barracks at Honolulu; who is responsible for her safe keeping; and whether it would be possible to make representations to whatever body now constitutes the Government of Hawaii suggesting the advisability of allowing her to reside in her palace under a guard, if a guard be necessary under the circumstances?


We have heard that the Queen has been sentenced to imprisonment, but the matter is not one in which Her Majesty's Government could interfere, nor are there any grounds upon which they could found a representation.
