§ * SIR CHARLES DILKE
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been C called to the references in the Belgian Chamber of Representatives to his statement concerning the Natives Protection Commission appointed by the Congo Government in 1896; and whether he will furnish the House with any information he may have received concerning the alleged meetings and Reports of the Commission.
THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS LORD CRANBORNE, Rochester)
My attention has been called to the references in the Belgian Chamber mentioned by the right hon. Baronet. The words I used in this House scarcely justified the description which was given of them. There is 75 no objection to laying all the information we have upon the Table, or I will send it privately to the right hon. Baronet if that would be sufficient.
