HC Deb 14 December 1900 vol 88 cc844-5
MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)

I beg to ask a question of which I have given private notice—namely, to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of THE irritation caused in New Zealand by a speech alleged to have been made by the Governor of Fiji to the natives, the Government will call upon the Governor of Fiji for some explanation.


I telegraphed on the 30th November to ascertain if the statement attributed to the Governor of Fiji was correctly reported. As there is no cable communication between Sydney and Fiji, it will probably be some time yet before an answer can reach me.
