§ SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies, whether the rules for Chinese emigrant ships will be at least as stringent as those contained in China, No. 3,1875, pages 19–23, prepared by the Portuguese Government for Macao and communicated to Lord Derby.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. LYTTELTON,) Warwick and Leamington
The rules to be observed will be based on the Hong-Kong Chinese Passenger Ordinances and should give as good protection as the rules referred to in the Question.
