HC Deb 28 March 1895 vol 32 cc352-3
*SIR E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT (Sheffield, Ecclesall)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether it is a fact, as stated by Reuter's Agency on Wednesday, that two large French Expeditions have arrived within the Niger Company's territory, or sphere, the one at Bagibo and the other at Boussa?


The Niger Company have informed us that they have received information to this effect, and a communication on the subject will be made immediately to the French Government.
