HC Deb 09 March 1911 vol 22 cc1737-8W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any official information as to the extremely high-handed proceedings in Northern Nigeria by the mission under Professor Frobenius; and, if so, what steps he has taken or proposes to take to prevent the repetition of proceedings likely to disturb the confidence of the natives in the administration?


I have received no information on this subject, and I am confident that the interests of the natives will be fully safeguarded, if occasion should arise, by the Protectorate authorities.
