HC Deb 27 June 1905 vol 148 cc237-8
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 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.
