HC Deb 28 May 1900 vol 83 cc1504-5

Can the Under Secretary give any information as to the riots in Jersey? Have any representa- tions been received from the French Government on the subject? Were the disturbances caused by the throwing of water on an orderly crowd?


We are aware that some disturbances took place in Jersey on the 21st, in which some French houses and shops were injured, but the origin of them has not yet been ascertained. All possible precautions have been taken by the Governor against their renewal, and a full report will be called for.
