HC Deb 17 December 1906 vol 167 c1029

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, in the event of a return of a proposed Law of the Transvaal Legislature presented to the Governor by him with amendments which he may recommend, what will be the effect of the rejection in whole or in part of those amendments of the proposed law; is the Governor, in proposing such amendments, to act on the advice of his responsible Ministers or on his own responsibility; and, if on his own responsibility, to whom will he be accountable.


The effect of the rejection of the amendments of the proposed law will obviously be that they will not become law. The Governor will act upon the advice of Ministers. A similar provision will be found in Section 58 of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act.
