Mr. J. H. THOMAS
I have received a personal letter from General Hertzog in which he submits certain reasons for asking that the question of the transfer of these territories to the Union may be further considered.
I have already stated that provision is made for that in the statement made on behalf of the then Government when the South Africa Act was before the House.
Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether any request or communication has been received from the protectorates themselves with regard to their future position?
