MR. BRYN ROBERTS (Carnarvonshire, Eifion)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will add to his inquiries concerning the men reported to have been shot in the Orange Free State for refusing to be commandeered, the query whether they are burghers, native or naturalised, of the Free State, and have been granted naturalisation, on the terms of their being subject to all the obligations and liabilities of burghers.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J. CHAMBERLAIN,) Birmingham, W.
The Governor of Natal has been asked whether, assuming there was any truth in the report, there were any circumstances tending to exonerate the authorities of the Orange Free State. This includes the hon. Member's query.
