HC Deb 31 July 1907 vol 179 c951

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Natal has asked the Imperial authorities to refund Natal's contribution of £700,000 to the expenses of the late war; whether the Government has waived its claim to the Transvaal's promised war contribution of £30,000,000; and whether Natal has asked for the payment of the sum of £520,000 for rents and harbour dues incurred by the Imperial Government during the war, which were remitted by Natal, although similar charges were paid in neighbouring Colonies.


No such request has been received from the Natal Government.
