§ MR. BRYN ROBERTS (Carnarvonshire,) Eifion
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the alteration of the form of the Transvaal oath of allegiance by omitting therefrom an express abjuration of all allegiance to any other State, as suggested by Sir Alfred Milner, will enable British subjects to become naturalised in the South African Republic without losing their British nationality; if not, whether he will take steps to let this be known to British subjects in the Transvaal, so that they shall not unwittingly lose their British nationality.
§ *THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J. CHAMBERLAIN,) Birmingham, W.
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. In answer to the second part I have to say that the Papers which have been published contain full information on the subject.
