HC Deb 19 December 1935 vol 307 c1975W
Duchess of ATHOLL

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the number of raids made into British territory by Abyssinian subjects from 1913 to 1923, and from 1924 to 1934, respectively; the number of persons killed and kidnapped and cattle stolen in such raids; and the amount of compensation assessed and paid?


Assuming the question to cover the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, my Noble Friend will find the details of the last serious raids in Command Paper 4153 of 1932, of which I am sending her a copy. I am afraid that in the time available it is impossible to supply all the detailed information asked for.
