HC Deb 09 February 1900 vol 78 c1051
SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies when the Australian Commonwealth Bill will be introduced, and if Her Majesty's Government propose to suggest to Parliament to make any change in the constitution as accepted by five colonies.


Delegates from the Australian Colonies are coming to this country to give and receive explanations as to certain points, and as they are expected at an early date the introduction of the Bill will be deferred until they have arrived.
