HC Deb 06 June 1904 vol 135 c791
MR. HERBERT SAMUEL (Yorkshire, Cleveland)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state what is the latest return of the death rate of the natives employed in the Selukwe gold mines in Rhodesia.


I am informed that during the four months ending 31st March, 1904, thirteen deaths occurred among natives employed in the mines in the Selukwe district; the average number employed during the period was 1,902.

MR. TREVELYAN (Yorkshire, W.R., Elland)

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the Report on mortality both in the Transvaal and Rhodesia will be presented?


I cannot. My impression is that we only this morning received information which will enable us to complete it.
