HC Deb 13 December 1900 vol 88 cc675-6
MR. HERBERT LEWIS (Flint Boroughs)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in constituting the proposed Crown colony government of the Transvaal and the Orange River Colony, the legislative council will contain, as in other Crown colonies, persons representing different races (whether white or coloured) and classes in the community.


The draft documents in which the constitutions are embodied have been forwarded to Sir A. Milner, whose observations I am awaiting. Meanwhile, I am not in a position to give a definite answer to the hon. Member's question.
