§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON (Canterbury)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether he is aware that the Dutch in the thirty-second year of their war with Achin, killed at Likat on 20th June, 124 women and eighty-eight children; and whether, having regard to the effect produced in the Malay States under British protection, where the Europeans are to the Malays in the proportion of about one to a hundred, he will consider the advisability of making representations to the Dutch Government, with the view to the cessation of such measures.

§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY,) Kensington, S.
No such information has reached the Foreign Office, but in any case the matter is not one in which His Majesty's Government could properly interfere.
