HC Deb 28 May 1895 vol 34 cc463-4

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Her Majesty's Government have received a Petition from Her Majesty's Indian subjects in the Transvaal, praying for justice and protection; whether the Boer Government have claimed and exercised the right of forcibly ejecting British Indian residents in the Transvaal from their homes and businesses, to their serious loss; and what steps Her Majesty's Government propose to take to protect the rights of Her Majesty's Indian subjects?


I stated the other day that I was about to lay Papers on this subject, which will give in the best form the information required by the hon. Gentleman.
