HC Deb 22 February 1900 vol 79 c798
MR. M'KENNA () Monmouthshire, N.

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the statute 6 and 7 Will. IV. c. 57, enacting that laws in force at Cape Colony for punishment of crimes be extended to British subjects in adjacent territories up to 25 deg. south latitude, is still in effective operation, or whether it has been repealed or allowed to drop into disuse.


The law in question was repealed by 26 and 27 Vict, c.; 34, which re-enacted its provisions, but made offences triable in Natal as well as in Cape Colony.

Forward to
