HC Deb 18 May 1905 vol 146 c747
SIR JAMES RANKIN (Herefordshire, Leominster)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Constitution about to be granted to the Transvaal contains any safeguards against the exclusion of British emigrants by the colony in the future.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) I would refer my hon. friend to my reply to a similar Question by the hon. and learned Member for Dundee on the 4th instant, † in which I pointed out that any legislation relating to immigration would be subject to the power of disallowance belonging to the Crown.
