HC Deb 15 July 1913 vol 55 cc1037-8

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the arrest and imprisonment of twenty-one persons in Barotseland, engaged in slave trading with Portuguese slave traders over the border; and, if so, whether he has instructed, or will instruct, His Majesty's Minister at Lisbon to draw the attention of the Portuguese Government to this traffic as constituting a serious menace to the good government of this portion of His Majesty's Dominions?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Harcourt)

I have telegraphed for information with regard to the incident mentioned, but it has not yet reached me.
