§ MR. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the burghers whose farms were sold before the signing of the terms of surrender, to make good charges for the maintenance of their wives and families in the concentration camps under the provisions of the Proclamation of 7th August, 1901, and of Proclamation No. 18, will be reinstated in those farms; and, if so, when, and on what terms.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Chamberlain.) No action has been taken in the matter, but, as I stated yesterday, I am expecting a Report on the subject from Lord Milner.† See (4) Debates, CIX., 87.
