HC Deb 09 July 1906 vol 160 cc507-8

I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that a meeting has been held at Pretoria under the auspices of the Labour Party, and also a mass meeting at Bramfontein, at which Resolutions were passed calling for the repatriation of the Chinese coolies; and whether, in view of these Resolutions, he proposes to take any action to give effect to the growing feeling in favour of such a policy.


The Resolution of the meeting of the Transvaal Independent Labour Party at Pretoria of May 9th, which has been received by the Secretary of State, is a Resolution in support of the action of His Majesty's Government with regard to Chinese repatriation. I have not received the Bramfontein Resolution.
