HC Deb 30 July 1906 vol 162 c456

I beg to ask the Under - Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that under the truck system, which prevails in certain of the mines in the Federated Malay States, the Chinese minors receive part payment of their earnings in opium; and whether he will consider what steps can be taken to put an end to this.


I have no information on the point, but the High Commissioner will be asked for a Report.
