HC Deb 20 June 1899 vol 73 c63
MR. J. A. PEASE (Northumberland, Tyneside)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether slave porters engaged in the mainland strip of the Zanzibar Protectorate to go inland can be retained in slavery on their return into the Protectorate; and, if not, whether instructions will be issued to prevent their detention for the future.


The legal status of a slave in the mainland strip is not changed by the fact of his having travelled in the interior.

MR. THOMAS BAYLEY (Derbyshire, Chesterfield)

Do the Government intend to change the legal status on the mainland?

No answer was given.
