HC Deb 27 February 1905 vol 141 cc1297-8
MR. JAMES O'KELLY (Roscommon, N.)

To ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to a recent appeal by Lord Cromer for the establishment of missions in the Bahr-el-Ghazal; and whether, seeing that this territory is leased to Belgium, His Majesty's Govern- ment has sanctioned Lord Cromer's intervention in the internal affairs of this territory.

(Answered by Earl Percy.) The hon. Member is under a misapprehension. The Bahr el Ghazal is a province of the Soudan.
