§ MR. HEDDERWICK (Wick Burghs)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the territories of the King of Wam, in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, have recently been invaded by the French; and whether the King of Wam is under British protection, and his territory within the British sphere; and, if so, whether Her Majesty's Government have taken, or propose to take, any steps to vindicate British rights and interests in the case of This last movement by the French?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES
I will answer this Question. We have heard nothing of the reported invasion, and if it were true the governor would have heard of it and reported it.
