HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 c1607

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Government is favourably disposed to guarantee the proposed Orange River Colony Loan of £1,500,000; and, if so, will it give the House of Commons an opportunity of fully discussing the question before a final decision is reached.


I cannot add anything to my reply to the hon. Member's Question of the 19th, except that, in the event of any guarantee being given, an Act of Parliament would be required such as was passed in the case of the Transvaal guaranteed loans.
