§ MR. CLAUDE HAY
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies upon what date the Transvaal Ordinance of 6th October, 1905, prohibiting the possession of opium except for medicinal purposes, was repealed.
§ MR. CHURCHILL
The Ordinance of 1905 was repealed by Ordinance No. 25 of 1906, to which the Governor assented on 18th August, 1906, and which was published in the Transvaal Gazette of 24th August.
§ Sir GILBERT PARKER (Gravesend)
Can the hon. Gentleman say if the two pounds of opium allowed for every Chinaman represents the quantity for sale as well as use?
