HC Deb 31 July 1907 vol 179 cc950-1

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether this Government has received, either through the Governor of the Orange River Colony, or through an official of the Settlers' Union of the Orange River Colony, a Petition or Resolution in favour of the revaluation of farms; and, if so, what reply has been made. †See page762.


Various requests for revaluation were received last year from individuals, but nothing of the kind has reached the Secretary of State since the draft legislation for improving the position of settlers to which I referred in my reply to the hon. Member of 23rd July was published. †
