§ MR. WODEHOUSE
asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether the Transvaal State will be designated as "the South African Republic," when under the suzerainty of the British Crown; and, whether the reserved control of its relations with Foreign Powers will include the control of its relations with independent chiefs of Native tribes?
MR. GRANT DUFF
Sir, to my hon. Friend's second Question I must answer—Yes. The Commission will have to determine the manner and extent of the control to be exercised, and it will be also part of its duty to consider the 348 question of the name of the Transvaal State, due regard being had to all relevant circumstances.
