§ CAPTAIN ELLICE (St. Andrews Burgas)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies what arrangements will be made for the religious instruction of the Chinese indentured labourers in the compounds; and whether Christian ministers of all denominations will be allowed into the compounds to give such religious instruction.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. LYTTELTON,) Warwick and Leamington
I am not able to make a definite statement on the subject as to which I am in communication with Lord Milner. If Christian ministers desire to go into the compounds, and the Chinese consent to receive them, the same facilities will be afforded to all denominations by the Government.
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
Has it not been arranged that these Chinese labourers shad be provided by the Government with idols of brass made in Birmingham?
