§ MR. LAMBERT
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Mijertain tribe, with which the Somaliland Mullah is fighting, is a tribe under British protection; and whether the fact that the Mullah being thus engaged is consonant with the Government's information that the Mullah's power is broken.
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY,) Kensington, S.
The Mijertain† See. (4) Debates, cxxxiii., 1045.110 tribe are not under British protection. The fact that they have attacked the Mullah is rather a confirmation than other-wise of the information to which the hon. Member refers.
§ Earl PERCY
I have said the fact that this tribe have dared to attack the Mullah goes rather to show his power is broken.
