§ SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether the Indian Government has yet re-considered the question of permitting Coolie emigration to French Colonies; and whether the Secretary of State has come to any decision on the subject?
§ * THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. G. Russell,) North Beds.
The Government of India has decided—and the Secretary of State concurs in the decision —that in the interests of Her Majesty's Indian subjects it is not desirable to renew emigration to the French West Indian Colonies. As regards Réunion the question is still under consideration.
