§ MR. McCRAE (Edinburgh, E.)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will lay upon the Table further correspondence between the Colonial Office and the Transvaal Government as to the issue of the Transvaal Loan; and whether he will include the draft Ordinance forwarded to the Transvaal on August 22nd, 1903, for sanction by the Legislative Council.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) All the material correspondence up to January, 1904, on this subject has been published in Cd. 1895. I do not propose to publish that which has taken place since, as it was of a strictly confidential character. The publication of the draft Ordinance would not, in my opinion, add any material information, but I shall be happy to send a copy to the hon. Member if he desires to see it.
