§ MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state the numbers and composition of the Transvaal Legislative Council; whether Generals Botha, Delarey, and Smuts are members; and how many Boers are included.
§ MR. J. CHAMBERLAIN
The Council consists of thirty members, of whom sixteen are official and fourteen non-official members. Five of the latter are Boers. The three gentlemen mentioned by the hon. Member were invited to serve on the Council, but declined for reasons which have been already published.
