§ SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether Papers can be laid before Parliament in continuation of Africa, 7, 1895, and containing a record of the expedition against Kabarega in May, 1895, in which Captain Dunning was killed, and of the later expedition; also Papers as to the recent attack on a convoy in Masailand, and Papers on the steps being taken towards the construction of the Uganda railroad?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. GKORGE CURZON,) Lancashire, Southport
Papers were laid on Monday, 554 showing the results of the recent operations against Kabarega. There would be no objection to laying Papers about the Masai attack, but we have not at present very much information on the subject. There are no Papers ready to be laid at this stage about the Uganda Railway. Active work is about to begin, the engineeers being upon the spot, and a large body of coolies being on their way from India.
