§ MR. BUCHANAN
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether it is intended that the two Native Indian regiments provided for the garrison of Mauritius are to form part of the permanent regimental establishment to be borne on the Army Estimates.
*MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS (for Mr. WYNDHAM)
It is impossible to say at present whether the arrangement will prove to be a permanent or only a temporary one.
§ SIR BRAMPTON GURDON (Norfolk, N.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, with reference to his statement on the 22nd ultimo* that the British Central African natives lately stationed in Mauritius were returning to Africa, whether they have by this time reached their own country; and, if not, whether they are still on board ship.
