HC Deb 06 July 1911 vol 27 c1475W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the proposal made in Germany that the German Empire should annex the Ovambo territory, which lies to the north of German South-West Africa; and whether he will resist any attempts at further German encroachment in Africa?


I hear that a proposal to develop the Ovambo territory has appeared in a local paper, but as it is already part of German South-West Africa there would be no question of encroachment if such a proposal were carried out.
