THE EARL OF ROSEBERY
I rise to ask the noble Marquess a question of which I have given him private notice. It is, whether he is in a position to confirm or contradict the report, of the fall or abandonment of Kassala?
§ THE PRIME MINISTER (The MARQUESS of SALISBURY)
We have received no information whatever of the kind, and I think I may say, therefore, the probability is that the Italian Government have received no information of the kind. I believe it probable they would have informed us if they had.
