§ SIR MANCHERJEE BHOWNAGGREE (Bethnal Green, N.E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the negotiations carried on by him with Lord Milner regarding the general treatment of British Indian subjects in the Transvaal and Orange River Colony have been concluded; whether he has arrived at any settlement of the question as repeatedly promised by him; and, if so, will he state the particulars regarding it.
§ MR. LYTTELTON
The dispatch addressed to Lord Milner and fully setting forth the views briefly summarised in my speech of 21st July will reach him shortly. Obviously a final settlement cannot be announced till I have considered his reply.
