asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to complaints that unprovoked assaults have recently been made upon citizens in Sierra Leone by British military officers; and, seeing that this has tended to create unrest and discontent among the native section of the community, will he make inquiry into the matter, with a view to appropriate action being taken if the complaints prove to be well founded?

Mr. WOOD:

My attention has not been called to any such incidents, but I will ask the Governor to furnish me with a report on the allegations.
