§ SIR ELLIS ASHMEAD-BARTLETT (Sheffield, Ecclesall)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies, whether he is now in a position to inform the House as to President Kruger's reply to his Dispatch of 4th February, and the invitation to visit England?
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
I answered this Question on Friday, the 27th, and I have nothing further to add to that reply.
§ SIR E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT
asked whether the statement contained in The Times of Friday last as to an offensive and defensive alliance between the Transvaal Republic and the Orange Free State was corroborated by any information which the right hon. Gentleman had received?
