HC Deb 07 August 1900 vol 87 c909
MR. FABER (York)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, considering the part taken by Canada and Australia in the South African War, it is proposed to ascertain the views of the Governments of those countries in regard to the settlement and government of the Transvaal and Orange State when the war is over.


I have already made myself acquainted with the views of the colonies of Canada and Australasia in regard to the main points of the future settlement, and Her Majesty's Government are in complete accordance with them as to the necessity for annexation, the establishment of a Government supported by military force, with the ultimate expectation of an extension to both colonies of representative self-government.
