HC Deb 11 December 1900 vol 88 c489
MR. HARWOOD (Bolton)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if, in the document promulgating the terms of settlement with the Boers, it will be plainly set forth that, as soon as circumstances allow, there will be extended to the populations of these colonies similar conditions of self-government to those prevailing in the other South African colonies.

THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J. Chamberlain,) Birmingham, W.

I certainly propose to make this plain, either by means of the proclamation referred to in my speech on Friday last, or in such other manner as may appear best adapted to secure the object in view.
