§ MR. G. LAMBERT (Devon, S. Molton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has received any confirmation of the telegrams he read 615 to the House on 19th February that a French force had arrived at Borea and ordered the non-commissioned officers to haul down the British flag, and also that the French had established posts at Wae in West Africa?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES
No confirmation is required. Both telegrams come from our own officers on the spot.
