HC Deb 02 August 1905 vol 150 cc1324-5

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any official information showing that the promises made by ministers of religion in the Transvaal before the introduction of Chinese labour, with reference to future missionary work in the compounds, have been fulfilled.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) I am not in possession of official information as to the matter. Inquiries were being made in September last among the Chinese whether they desired the services of Christian ministers, but I am not aware with what result.
