HC Deb 08 February 1881 vol 258 c346

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether the Government are in possession of the Proclamation recently issued by the Triumvirate of the Boers of the Transvaal; and if there is any objection to laying it upon the Table of the House?


Sir, in reply to my hon. Friend, I shall have much pleasure in laying on the Table a copy of a document received at the Colonial Office, purporting to be an authentic copy of the Boers Proclamation. I shall, at the same time, lay on the Table a copy of a subsequent Proclamation by them, which is also believed to be authentic.
