THE INDEMNITY BILL.

MOTION IN THE COMMONS. (Per Press Association —Copyriglit.) /Received. February 13^ 11.40 a.m.) LONDON, February 12. Mr Harcourt, in reply to a question, said that the Colonial Office, on January 27, when too late for a reply, received information of the intended deportations. Mr Ramsay MacDonakl moved an amendment to the Address-in-Reply to instruct Lord Gladstone to reserve the Indemnity Bill until a judicial inquiry had been instituted. He contended that, the proclamation of martial law and the deportations without trial were unwarranted. Mr Harcourt said the indemnity question was one for the South African people and Parliament.
