HC Deb 23 July 1896 vol 43 c471
* SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether there is any foundation for the statement that French officers have recently visited Wadelai, or any part of the territory leased by Great Britain to the Sovereign of the Congo State, and not renounced by the latter at the time of his renunciation of the remainder of the leased sphere?


We have no information in support of the statement; and it is conceivable that Wadelai may be a misprint for Waday.
