§ MR. FELL (Great Yarmouth)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the length of the lease of the Lado Enclave to the Congo Froe State; and whether there is any power to determine the lease at an earlier date or to cancel it for any cause and regain possession of this tract of country, so as to have it administered by Englishmen and not by officials of the Congo Free State.
§ SIR EDWARD GREY
In Answer to the first Question, I have to refer the hon. Member to Article 1 of the agreement of 12th May, 1906, between the Congo State and the United Kingdom (published in Treaty Series No. 4, 1906). The Answer to the second Question is in the negative.
