HC Deb 07 August 1899 vol 76 c21

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any assurance has yet been received from the French Government that French traders in the New Hebrides will be subjected to the same restrictions as regards the sale of spirits and firearms to the natives that have been imposed for several years past upon British traders.


No answer has been received from the French Government, but their attention was recently again called to the subject by Her Majesty's Ambassador.
