HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 cc1099-100

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he is aware that the Royal Commission to inquire into the claim of the British South Africa Chartered Company is holding its meetings to-receive evidence in private; and whether, in view of the public interest in this matter, he will represent to the Commission the necessity for holding their meetings in public?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Lieut.- Colonel Amery)

I understand that none of the meetings at which evidence is taken or counsel is heard is private.
