HC Deb 18 July 1911 vol 28 c867

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Transvaal Draft Municipal Ordinance has yet been passed by the Transvaal Provincial Council; whether the Ordinance as drafted is ultra vires of the South Africa Act of 1909; whether he has received any representations from or on behalf of the Transvaal Indians in respect thereto; and what action he intends taking in regard to such representations?

Colonel SEELY

According to the most recent official information in the possession of the Secretary of State for the Colonies the Transvaal Local Government Ordinance was referred to a Select Committee of the Transvaal Council. He has received a copy of the petition of the Chairman of the British Indian Association against the Bill, and he is in communication with the Union Government on the subject.
