§ MR. FELL (Great Yarmouth)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to the decrease in the number of offences committed by Chinese coolies on the Rand; and whether he has any official information as to the causes of this decrease.
§ MR. CHURCHILL
I have seen a statement by the Chairman of the Chamber of Mines to this effect in the Press. Official information has not yet been received as to the number of convictions since May last.
