HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 c381
MR. COX (Preston)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India is willing to sanction the recruiting of Indian coolies for work in the Transvaal, either on the railways, or on the farms, or in the mines, upon the terms of the British Guiana Ordinance.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Morley.) No application for Indian coolies has been addressed to the Government of India by or on behalf of the Transvaal Government, and I cannot at present say whether, if such an application were made, the Government of India would be willing to agree to it on the terms mentioned in the Question.
