§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL () Donegal, S.
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the notice issued 60 by Sir Alfred Milner, on the 26th January, 1900, pledging Her Majesty's Government to refuse to recognise and to treat as invalid confiscations of gold mines in the Transvaal was issued on the advice of the Foreign Office, or on advice from any other departments of the Home Administration.
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
The notice was issued under instructions given by Her Majesty's Government after due consideration of the legal and other aspects of the question.
