§ MR. LEA (St. Pancras, E.)
To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state the number of Kaffirs employed in the Transvaal Colony on May 31st, 1906, by the Public Works Department, by the military authorities, in domestic service, and in trade generally respectively.
(Answered by Mr. Churchill.) The latest figures received of natives holding passports and working in labour districts of the Transvaal are those for April 30th, which give 95,458 for mines and works, and 84,522 for other employ, but they do not show how this last number is distributed among various employments.
