HC Deb 23 February 1904 vol 130 cc724-5

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the late James M'Gowan, alias James M'Gavan, alias James Murray, who died in Rhodesia in 1897, possessed of an interest in the Lendy Estate, which has since been realised, was at the time of his death in possession of a sum of £25 0s. 10½d. in cash for which no account has been rendered; and will he, following the example of the late Colonial Secretary, request the Master of the Higher Court to report on the whereabouts of this sum.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) I have no information as to the sum of £25 0s. l0½d. referred to, but I will communicate with the Administrator of Southern Rhodesia, through Lord Milner, with a view to obtaining a report upon the hon. Member's statement.
