§ SIR R. REID (Dumfries Burghs)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Governments of the Cape, Natal, the Orange Free State, and the Transvaal have expressed disapproval of the recent introduction of native men and women 705 into this country for the show called "Savage South Africa, in London," as injurious to themselves and the South African population, and whether the High Commissioner has conveyed to the Colonial Office his concurrence in that disapproval; and whether the correspondence between the High Commissioner and the Capo Government can be laid before the House?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J. CHAMBERLAIN, Birmingham, W.)
The answer to both questions in the first part of the Question is Yes, and I may add that I entirely concur in their opinions. I do not propose to lay the correspondence before the House, but the honourable Member can see it at the Colonial Office if he desires to do so.
