§ MR. COGHILL (Stoke-upon-Trent)
To ask the Secretary ot State for the Colonies whether he has received any information as to recent severe fighting In Southern Nigeria; if he can say what was the force employed; what was the 238 object of the expedition; and how many casualties occurred.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) I presume that the Question has reference to a communication from Reuter's agent in Liverpool which was published in the newspapers on the 19th of June. I am awaiting a report on the subject from the High Commissioner of Southern Nigeria.
