HC Deb 08 July 1897 vol 50 c1358
MR. ALFRED HUTTON (York, W.R., Morley)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Ins attention has been called to any complaint made by the Chief Khama respecting the establishment of huts for the sale of liquor in connection with the railway through his territory, and in contravention of the agreement made between him and the Chartered Company


The only complaint of this sort of which I am aware is one made by Khama in February last of the sale of liquor at Magalapse siding by persons who held no liquor licence whatever. The Assistant Commissioner reported that a detachment of police had already been sent to the place, and that there should be no room for further complaint, though he feared that such illicit practices had been going on previously.
