§ *SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any reply has now been received containing the observations of the Governor of Natal on a question asked as to the Report published in the Natal Government Gazette of 21st January by the Under-Secretary for Native Affairs on behalf of the Colonial Secretary of Natal, dealing with the unanimous finding of the Native Affairs Commission; and, if so, whether he can inform the House of the view taken by the Governor as to continuous breaches of faith with the Zulus in regard to their land situate in Zululand.
§ COLONEL SEELY
The Governor's reply on the legal point has been received and points out that the Under-Secretary's view as to the legislative authority of the Governor is not correct. No reply on the broader issue has yet been received.
