§ Mr. LEIF JONES
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in connection with the Liberian report on Slavery, he has received any report from His Majesty's Consul in that country dealing with the allegations of reprisals on the natives who gave evidence before the international commission; and, if so, whether it is proposed to publish such consular despatches?
§ Mr. DALTON
His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires at Monrovia reported in November that rumours were current that tribesmen who had given evidence before the commission were baying their villages pillaged by Liberian Frontier Force soldiers. He has been instructed to furnish all information available on the subject. The question of publication of these consular despatches is receiving careful consideration.
