HC Deb 28 July 1908 vol 193 cc1223-4
MR. WEDGWOOD (Newcastle-under-Lyme)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to the loss of £41,420 7s. 11d. entailed on the Exchequer through the failure of the Colonial Office to reply to the High Commissioner of South Africa as to the allocation of the charge for the administration of the Compensations Fund between Great Britain and the Transvaal; whether the responsibility for this loss has been brought home to any particular official; and what action has been taken in the matter.


I would refer my hon. friend to my reply to a similar Question yesterday.
