MR. BEOADHURST (Leicester)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to take steps to prevent any systematic immigration of Chinese labour into the United Kingdom on the occasion of its completion of its contracts in South Africa.
§ MR. ASQUITH (for Sir H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN)
Any systematic immigration into the United Kingdom does not at present seem probable. If, however, the contingency were to arise, it would be for His Majesty's Government to consider whether any steps should be taken to check it.
§ SIR H. VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
asked whether this matter was not provided for by the Aliens Act of last session.
