§ MR. ALDEN (Middlesex, Tottenham)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will consider the advisability of postponing the actual appointment of Members of the Upper House in the Orange River Colony until the country as a whole has elected its representatives, in view of the importance of ensuring the harmonious working of the two Houses.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. CHURCHILL, Manchester, N.W.)
No, Sir. As I informed the hon. Member on June 17th, the Transvaal precedent will be followed in all respects.
