MR. GRIFFITH (Anglesey)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether an application has 183 been made to the Government of the South African Republic for compensation to Mrs. Edgar, the wife of Mr. Edgar, who was recently killed by a policeman at Johannesburg; and, if so, what reply has been received to such application?
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
Mrs. Edgar has asked Her Majesty's Government to apply to the Government of the South African Republic for compensation to her and her child for the death of her husband. The matter is under consideration. No application has been made.
