HC Deb 27 February 1905 vol 141 c1299
MASTER OF ELIBANK (Edinburgh, Midlothian)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in connection with the representative institutions which he proposes establishing in the Transvaal, he has considered the working of the Barbadoes Constitution, with its wholly elective lower assembly, in contrast with that of other Crown Colonies, where there are composite councils consisting of nominated and elected members; and whether he is able to make any statement as to the form of Crown Colony Government he has in contemplation.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) I have not failed to consider, among others, the form of Constitution which exists in Barbadoes. I am not able at present to make any statement, as to the form of Government contemplated for the Transvaal.
