HC Deb 23 February 1905 vol 141 cc1084-5
MR. HERBERT SAMUEL (Yorkshire, Cleveland)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will furnish a statement of all sentences which have been inflicted by Courts in the Transvaal upon Chinese labourers, showing what was the offence in each case, and, where the option of a fine was given, whether the fine was paid or other punishment suffered.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) I will furnish such a statement; but I do not expect to receive the information asked for in the last part of the Question under some weeks.
