HC Deb 04 May 1896 vol 40 c452
MR. H. D. GREENE (Shrewsbury)

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government had received any telegraphic or other communication with reference to the trial of Major Lothaire at Boma?


said the Government had received from Her Majesty's Consul at Loanda a report confirming the result of the trial as it appeared in the newspapers, but they had not received any telegram from the Vice-Consul who officially attended the proceedings at Boma. Until they received a Dispatch from that gentleman he regretted he had no information to give the House.
