HC Deb 18 February 1895 vol 30 cc963-4
MR. H. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Her Majesty's Administrator in Uganda is now administering that portion of Unyoro which is now held by Her Majesty's Forces; what are the terms which have been submitted to the Chief of Unyoro as condition of withdrawal, and which he has declined to accept; and whether Her Majesty's Administrator is in possession of instructions as to the frontiers of the territory over which a British Protectorate has been established; and whether, if so, they include any portion of Unyoro.


Information on the first two points will be found in the Papers relating to Uganda, which have been promised, but I may say generally that Unyoro is not being administered by the British Commissioner in Uganda, that the Chief of Unyoro was not asked to withdraw at all, and that the operations undertaken there have been to prevent raids upon Uganda. Instructions on the last point of the question were sent and are in the Commissioners possession; the frontiers of the Protectorate do not include any portion of Unyoro.

Forward to
