HC Deb 13 May 1918 vol 106 c8
11. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will enumerate the agreements, treaties, or undertakings affecting Central Africa into which His Majesty's Government have entered since the outbreak of war?


On 19th September, 1914, His Majesty's Government and the French Government assured the Belgian Government that they would support Belgium in every way in securing the integrity of her colonial possessions.

On 3rd February, 1915, an agreement was arrived at between Great Britain and Belgium relating to the Congo-Uganda Boundary from Mount Salimio to the Congo Nile watershed.

On 29th April, 1916, His Majesty's Minister at Havre addressed to the Belgian Government a note to the effect that His Majesty's Government adhered to the declaration made by the French Government to the Belgian Government on that day, pledging their support in the negotiations for peace for the maintenance of the territorial integrity of the Belgian Congo, and to obtain for that colony a special indemnity to cover the damage suffered during the War.
