§ 34. Sir JOHN JARDINE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the fort of Sheikh Said opposite the island of Perim has been retained in British occupation since the bombardment; and if the territory is to be added to the Aden settlement?
§ Mr. CHARLES ROBERTS
I can make no statement on the subject except that the Turks were ejected, and the armament and fortifications of Sheikh Said destroyed by His Majesty's Forces at the beginning of the War.
