MR. BRYN ROBERTS (Carnarvonshire, Eifion)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will lay upon the Table a detailed statement of the moneys expended in repatriation of the Boers after the war, and in compensation for losses sustained by them in or in consequence of the war, and stating the name and address of every person who received £100 or upwards of any such moneys and on what account the same was received.
§ MR. LYTTELTON
I must refer to my previous answer to the hon. Member on Thursday last† which I do not see any reason to vary, but I will communicate with Lord Milner as to whether the limitation now proposed by the hon. Member will materially affect the reasons for which I have felt unable to agree to this Return.
MR. BRYN ROBERTS
Is there any list of the persons to whom the moneys have been paid. Would the cost of obtaining the information be more than; the mere expense of copying that list?
