§ MR. COURTHOPE (Sussex, Rye)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if any clause will be inserted in the Constitution of the Transvaal Colony to prevent the responsible Government from sending accredited representatives direct to Foreign Powers?
§ MR. ASQUITH
No, Sir, there is no need for such a clause. British diplomatic representatives in foreign countries are accredited by His Majesty and not by any Colonial Government.
