HC Deb 26 February 1907 vol 169 c1426

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Secretary for the Colonies has interfered in a legal action which Dinizulu is taking against his former private secretary, Mr. Daniels, in the course of which the statements made by the said Mr. Daniels, imputing disloyalty to Dinizulu, will be examined; whether the Secretary of State has made any communication to the Natal authorities of any kind regarding this trial, and, if so, under what statutory or other authority has the communication been made; and whether, if this communication has been made, it is proposed to lay it upon the Table of the House.


No, Sir, the Secretary of State has not interfered.
