§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
To ask the Postmaster General, as representing the Secretary of State for the Colonies, whether the blockhouses in the Transvaal and Orange River Colonies, which were taken over by Lord Milner from the War Office authorities for *50,000, have now been resold to the inhabitants of the districts; and, if so, will he state whether the re-sale has resulted in a loss; and, if so, how much.
(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain, for the Secretary of State for the Colonies.) I have no later information than that given to the hon. Member on the 15th December last.†
