§ MASTER or ELIBANK (Edinburgh Midlothian)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Sub-Commissioner Bagge of the East Africa Protectorate Service, whose views in regard to land grants in the Masai Country were recently sustained by Lord Lansdowne as against those held by Sir Charles Eliot, had, immediately previous to the latter's resignation as Administrator, been removed from his post at Naivasha to the less desirable district of Kisumu; and, if so, whether that official will be reinstated in his former post if, in the opinion of Sir Donald Stewart, there was no adequate cause for such transfer.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY,) Kensington, S.
The collector at Kisuma was in ill health and he was therefore sent to Naivasha, which is a healthier station than Kisumu. Mr. Bagge was sent temporarily to take his place.
