§ MR. PAULTON (Durham, Bishop Auckland)
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether complaints have reached Her Majesty's Government with regard to the position of emigrants who recently went out to Tennessee in connection with the Tennessee Coal, Iron, and Railroad Company; whether inquiry is being made into the circumstances; and, if so, whether the 503 results of such inquiry will be made public; and, whether Her Majesty's Government will take any action in the matter, should the complaints prove to be well-founded?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) (Manchester, N.E.)
Inquiries on this subject are being made through the Home Office. Any further action will depend upon the result of those inquiries.
