HC Deb 18 July 1905 vol 149 c1060
MR. LEIF JONES (Westmoreland,) Appleby

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies wheth: he will furnish the House with copies of corespondence and other Papers relating to the negotiations between the Chamber of Mines at Johannesburg and the Government, as the result of which two troops of constabulary are to be stationed in the East and West Rand to assist the authorities in coping with disturbances among the Chinese; and whether he will take steps to secure that the cost of this arrangement shall be borne by the mine-owners concerned.


I have not recived any such correspondence, but I am making inquiry as to the alleged arrangement.
