HC Deb 06 May 1901 vol 93 c733
*MR. BLACK (Banffshire)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can state how many gold mines are at present producing gold in the Transvaal; and what has been the production of gold in that colony since 1st January, 1901.


I am informed by Sir A. Milner that no gold has yet been produced since 1st January; that fifty stamps commenced work on the 4th instant, and that one hundred more start to-day.


What tax is it proposed to place on the mines?


Order, order! That does not arise out of the question.
