I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to the condition of the immigrant Hindoos who have landed in British Columbia, and have neither food, shelter, nor suitable clothing to withstand the rigours of the winter, and are without employment; and whether he will facilitate any steps taken to remedy the condition of these natives; and if he can state their numbers.
§ MR. CHURCHILL
I have nothing to add to the Answer which I gave yesterday to the Question of the hon. Member for the Montgomery Boroughs on this subject.
§ *MR. HAROLD COX (Preston)
Can the hon. Gentleman say who is responsible for enticing these Indians to go to so unsuitable a country?
