List of Dominions[edit]

Why is Malta listed as a "Dominion" as in only achieved independence in 1964, so belongs to the later period where there is so much debate about "Commonwealth Realms"?

Also with regard to Newfoundland, I understand that it was entitled to the title Dominion from the 1907 Colonial Conference, but did not officially adopt the title until 1917 Colonial Conference. The 1907 Conference described the members as "Dominions" instead of colonies. New Zealand adopted the title later that year (by Royal Decree) as listed, but there is nothing to show that Newfoundland made such a change. Interestingly the 1907 conference also included all four South African provinces, so that within 5 years of the end of the Boer War, the two Boer states of Transvaal and the Orange Free State were treated by the British government as "Dominions". However the South African provinces never assumed such separate status prior to the Union of South Africa 1910. 09:46, 11 September 2015 (UTC)~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Noel Ellis (talkcontribs)
