§ MR. RICHARD CAVENDISH (Lancashire, N., Lonsdale)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is able to give any information as to the number, if any, of British subjects killed or injured in the recent dynamite explosion at Johannesburg; and if he could, as far as possible, ascertain the names, and cause them to be published?
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
I have already telegraphed for information on this subject, but have not yet received that reply. When I do so I will publish it in the Press. I may add that I doubt whether British subjects of European descent were killed.
