§ SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether there are any such concentrated areas of public lands, now Crown Lands, in the Transvaal, as to make it possible, consistently with respect to good titles to private property in land held by white settlers, to set aside native reserves, for 361 example, in the Northern Transvaal; and whether the Government contemplate any steps in the direction of securing for the natives any portion of the country.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THECOLONIES (Mr. J. CHAMBERLAIN,) Birmingham, W.
Large native locations exist, I understand, especially in the Zoutpansburg district, but owing to the interruption of communications caused by the war, I have at present very little information regarding them. I will ask Lord Milner to give his attention to this matter as soon as circumstances permit.
