HC Deb 01 April 1914 vol 60 cc1165-6
9. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received any information regarding the composition of the Court which is to try Mr. Bowskill; whether arrangements have been made for the provision of legal advice for him at his trial; whether it has been decided that such trial shall he held at Loanda or, if not there, at Noki?


In a telegram dated 29th March His Majesty's Minister at Lisbon reported that he had received a note from the Portuguese Minister for Foreign Affairs stating that a telegram had been sent to the Governor-General of Angola requesting information as to the composition of the tribunal which is to try Mr. Bowskill, and as to the place where the trial will be held, and urging that the trial should not begin until Mr. Bowskill had had time to obtain legal assistance. His Excellency promised to inform Mr. Carnegie of the Governor-General's reply when it had been received.
