HC Deb 07 July 1902 vol 110 cc922-3
MR. BLACK (Banffshire)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he proposes this session to introduce a Supplementary Estimate for Civil Administration in the Transvaal and Orange River Colonies; and, if so, for what amount.

THE SECRETARY OF STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. J. chamberlain,) Birmingham, W.

The answer is in the negative.


Is the Government satisfied that the ordinary revenue of the Transvaal and Orange River Colonies will be sufficient for the police and the army of occupation?


That does not arise out of the previous Question. If we thought it necessary to ask for more money, of course we should do so.
