HC Deb 06 March 1906 vol 153 c289
MR. HAROLD COX (Preston)

,: I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to the arrest of a large number of natives by the Colonial authorities in Natal, and whether His Majesty's Government will take steps to secure a proper trial for these subjects of His Majesty before any punishment is inflicted upon them?


His Majesty's Government do not consider that they could properly interfere with the responsibility of the Colonial Government in this matter. There is no reason to anticipate that these natives will not receive propertrial.
