The treaty`s misleading name was introduced by former Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, who wanted to go after his despised successor, Caprivi, to strike a deal that Bismarck himself had arranged during his tenure. However, Bismarck`s nomenclature meant that Germany had exchanged an African empire for the tiny Helgoland (« pants for a button »).  This was zealously taken up by imperialists who complained of « treason » against German interests. Carl Peters and Alfred Hugenberg launched a call for the creation of the German Association, which took place in 1891.  The Helgoland-Zanzibar Treaty (also known as the Anglo-German Agreement of 1890) was an agreement signed on 1 July 1890 between the German Empire and Great Britain. The honourable Member, I believe, will see that this will be replaced by the Brussels dossier. Have Turkey and the Netherlands already given in in their accession to the Brussels Act? Paragraph operations are performed directly in the full article text window on the left. Among the operations of paragraphs are: the matter occupies the attention of the sultan and the consul general. The entire German sphere in East Africa, with the exception of the 10-mile-deep strip on the coast, which now belongs to Zanzibar. I ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has been warned that this is the trap under Article VIII of Article VIII. of the Anglo-German Agreement, the two Powers which have undertaken to apply the Law of Berlin in all parts of their field where the first five Articles are applicable « on the date of this Agreement »; whether, in these terms, the two governments which signed the Berlin Law of 1532 intended to withdraw from that law areas which might be detained or under the influence of one of the two powers after the signing of the Anglo-German Agreement; and whether, under this regime, can the German Government allow German goods to enter the mainland of the Sultanate of Zanzibar duty-free if the coastline is ceded by the Sultan while maintaining customs duties which then deviate from British trade? Will this authorisation not lead to the repeal of the provisions of the Berlin Act of 1885? It was certainly not intentional. Britain and Germany have neither the desire nor the power to withdraw from any of the obligations of the Berlin Act.
Such a regime, such as that mentioned in the previous paragraph, is not feasible, as other replies explained in detail. I ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to know when Britain will take over the protectorate of Zanzibar as part of the Anglo-German agreement; and will he promise that if this protectorate is adopted, slavery within the borders of the British protectorate will no longer be legal? I ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs of 1531 which parts of the German sphere of influence are cited in Africa within the meaning of Article VIII. of the Anglo-German Agreement, under which the German Government undertakes, under this Article, to apply the free trade provisions of the Berlin Act of 1885? said: If I remember correctly, the United States took an exceptional position at the conference. . . .
