§ MR. HARMOOD - BANNER (Liverpool, Everton)
To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the fact that the Kaffirs reside in compounds which consist of limited enclosures surrounded by walls or other fencing, whereas the Chinese have large areas of 2,000 acres or more surrounding the buildings in which they sleep and live, available for their free movement and recreation, it is proposed to improve Kaffirs' enclosures.
(Answered by Mr. Churchill) Entirely new compounds had to be built for the Chinese. Regulations are to be enforced for improving Kaffir compounds, as the hon. Member will see by reference to page 141 of Cd. 2819. The residence of Kaffirs in the mine areas is not subject to the same stringent conditions as are applied to the Chinese.
