HC Deb 22 February 1904 vol 130 c555
MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any evidence that General Botha and the other Boer leaders who have protested, in the name of the Boers in the Transvaal, gainst the importation of indentured Chinese to work in the mines, were actuated by unworthy motives; whether,>f so, he will lay that evidence upon the Table of the House; and whether he has replied to the protest of General Botha and the other Boer leaders.


I would refer the hon Member to the reply to the letter of the Boer leaders published at page 22 of Cd. 1899 on Monday last and to my statement in debate in the House of Commons on Tuesday last†
