HC Deb 25 May 1905 vol 146 c1388
MR. LEVY (Leicestershire, Loughborough)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, when making inquiries as to the reasons for the repatriation of the 332 Chinese to December last, he will also inquire what penalties in addition to repatriation were imposed; whether all or any portion of the wages earned by such labourers were withheld or deducted as is provided by Clause 27; and whether such repatriated labourers were returned merely to the ports of embarkation or to their homes.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Lyttelton.) I will make the further inquiries in accordance with the hon. Member's request.
