HC Deb 06 June 1907 vol 175 c845

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether General Botha, when expressing a desire on behalf of his Government that the Imperial forces in the Transvaal should be maintained at proper strength, also expressed any desire to pay for those forces out of the revenues of the Transvaal in the same way that the Imperial forces maintained in India are paid for out of the revenues of India.


My hon. friend will, no doubt, be surprised to learn that the Answer is in the negative.
