HC Deb 28 June 1905 vol 148 c362
SIR WILFRID LAWSON (Cornwall, Camborne)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any official information as to frequent licking into shape of the Chinese coolies by Chinese policemen, and as to sentences of from five to fifty strokes on the culprit stripped and flung down on his face, one policeman holding his head and another his feet; and, if so, will he say under what law and by whose authority these punishments are inflicted.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) I have no such information.
