HC Deb 05 May 1898 vol 57 cc420-1
MR. T. C. H. HEDDERWICK (Wick Burghs)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (1) whether the Sus country is recognised by the British Government as an integral portion of the dominions of the Sultan of Morocco, or only as territory under his suzerainty or protectorate; (2) whether the sovereignty or jurisdiction of the Sultan is acknowledged by the tribes of the Sus; and (3) whether the custom houses of the Sultan have been erected by the Sultan on a line dividing Morocco from the Sus?


The first two Questions were answered by the Under Secretary of State on the 10th February of the present year in reply to a Question from the honourable Member for King's Lynn. The exact position of the Moorish custom houses in the neighbourhood of the Sus district is not known, but there appears to be at least one custom house at Agadir on the coast.
