HC Deb 21 March 1906 vol 154 cc367-8
MR. HAROLD COX (Preston)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether His Majesty's Government are willing to sanction the importation of Indian coolies into the Transvaal on the terms of the British Guiana Ordinance.


His Majesty's Government has not received any application from the Transvaal Government for the introduction of Indian coolies on the terms referred to by the hon. Member, and it is impossible to state beforehand the manner in which such an application would be dealt with.
