HC Deb 29 March 1906 vol 154 c1532
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

; I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether a resolution has been received from the trades council of Johannesburg in which the Government are warned of a threat of the mineowners to close down the mines and suspend construction work, with a view of coercing the people to support the mining magnates in introducing an unlimited number of Chinese; and, if so, what action, if any, the Government mean to take in regard to the matter.


I have to refer the hon. Member to my Answer of yesterday. †
