HC Deb 21 January 1897 vol 45 cc195-6
SIR JOHN KENNAWAY (Devon, Honiton)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs will the Government measures for abolition of slavery apply to the whole Sultunate of Zanzibar or merely to the Protectorate of Zanzibar, excluding Mombasa and the territories of the Sultan on the mainland within the ten mile limit?


For the reasons which I stated in the House on Tuesday, namely, that Mr. Hardinge has not returned to Zanzibar, and that there are matters which still remain to be discussed between him and the Sultan, I am unable at present to add anything to what I then said.
