1. Mr. CATHCART WASON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has now received a report of the trial of a corporal of the Portuguese Army for the murder of the Rev. A. J. Douglas on Lake Nyasa; if His Majesty's Government were represented at the trial; if there were any provocative or extenuating circumstances justifying the sentence; and whether the Portuguese Government have offered, or have been asked, to pay adequate compensation to the relatives of the victim?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir E. Grey)
As I have not yet received the full information as to the trial, which I am expecting, I cannot at present add to the answers given on the 11th and 12th of December on this subject. I am informed that the 186 Report from the Governor of Nyasaland cannot reach this country before the third week in January.
