§ *SIR C. DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign. Affairs whether Her Majesty's Government have yet come to a decision with regard to the validity of Roman Catholic claims for compensation arising out of events in 742 Uganda which occurred during the Government of that district by the British East Africa Company; and whether, in case such claims have been sustained, they are being considered in relation to any payment which may have to be made to the British East Africa Company
§ SIR E. GREY
said, that the question of Roman Catholic claims formed part of the general negotiations with France about pending questions in Africa, and no settlement had been come to.
