HC Deb 08 May 1899 vol 71 c55
CAPTAIN BETHELL (York, W. R., Holderness)

May I ask the right honourable Gentleman the Colonial Secretary, whether he has any information of the existence of a so-called crisis in the Transvaal, as there has been a somewhat alarming crop of rumours attributing all sorts of designs to him in some cases.


No, sir; I do not think it necessary to take notice of all the rumours which are published with regard to the Transvaal.
