HC Deb 06 March 1906 vol 153 c293
* MR. STAVELEY HILL (Staffordshire, Kingswinford)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state what reinforcements are to be sent for the punitive expedition in Sokoto.


Two hundred and fifty native troops of the West African Frontier Force have been sent as a precautionary measure into Northern Nigeria from the neighbouring colony of Lagos. It is not anticipated that any further reinforcements will be required.
