§ MAJOR SEELY (Isle of Wight)
I beg, to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, before sanctioning the Ordinance for the importation of Chinese indentured labour into the Transvaal, he will cause further inquiry to be made as to the effect of such importation on the minds of the native tribes of South Africa, and the complications which may ensue, and communicate the results of such inquiry to this House.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. LYTTELTON,) Warwick and Leamington
I do not see my way to giving the pledge required by the hon. and gallant Member.
