HC Deb 16 March 1925 vol 181 cc1832-3
12. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has information of recent fighting between section, of the Jubaland Somalis whether the disorders have occurred in any part of the territory about to be handed over to Italy under the recent Treaty; whether any of His Majesty's forces have been engaged; and what is the cause of the disturbances?


The answer to the first two parts is in the affirmative, and to third in the negative. I have no information as to the cause of the disturbances. Reinforcements of King's African Rifles have been ordered to Kismayu as a precautionary measure.
