HC Deb 07 August 1899 vol 76 c21

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give the latest information in his possession as to the situation in Samoa, and the prospects of a general acceptance of the new form of government suggested by the Joint Commission.


The latest information from Samoa is that the natives have returned to their homes, and that tranquillity prevails. The.Report of the Joint Commission has not yet been received, and no opinion can therefore be expressed concerning it.
