§ MR. SCHWANN (Manchester, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether an expedition has been despatched to Barotzeland, whether the natives have risen, and whether another small native war is in progress.
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
A statement appeared in the Buluwayo Chronicle of 6th February that the 89 natives in Barotzeland were in an unsettled condition. On the 2nd of April the acting administrator reported that this statement was without the slightest foundation. If the hon. Member has later information, I will inquire as to its truth by telegraph.
