§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state how many of the 1,000 natives recruited last summer from the British Central Africa Protectorate for labour in the Transvaal mines have arrived at their destination, and the nature of their engagement and rate of pay.
§ * EARL PERCY
The number of natives who had arrived in the Transvaal at the beginning of this year was 818. The nature of their engagement and rate of pay will be found in Africa No. 2 (1903.)
