HC Deb 29 February 1904 vol 130 cc1227-8

I beg to ask the Secreretary of State for the Colonies whether, seeing that the Sunday Labour Law in the Transvaal prohibits labour in the mines on Sunday, he will use his influence to secure that the coolies shall be allowed to go outside of the compounds on Sundays.


The extent to which it will be convenient and desirable to grant permits under Clause 19 of the Ordinance must be left for settlement in the light of experience.
