§ SIR ELLIS ASHMEAD-BARTLETT (Sheffield, Ecclesall)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies what reply the Transvaal Government have made to the remonstrance of Her Majesty's Government regarding the recent legislation of the Volksraad which is in violation of the Convention of 1884?
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
I informed the hon. Member on the 21st of January that I propose to lay the papers on this subject before Parliament, but that until the time arrives for doing so I am unable to make any further statement. The correspondence is still incomplete, and cannot yet be laid.
