§ MR. PIKE PEASE (Darlington)
On behalf of the hon. Member for Gravesend, I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any portion, and, if so, how much, of the guarantee loan of £5,000,000 to the Transvaal is to be applied to the repatriation of the burghers and to compensation to burghers.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (MR. CHURCHILL, Manchester, N.W.)
It is understood that no part of the loan will be devoted to the purposes mentioned by the hon. Member.
