§ CAPTAIN CRAIG (Down, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether in the suggested negotiations with the Government of France relative to the New Hebrides, he will urge the importance of forbidding entirely the engagement of young children under any scheme of indentured labour, and, further, the raising of the minimum wage from 10s. to at least £1.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. Churchill,) Manchester, N.W.
I may perhaps be allowed to answer this Question: I have already had an opportunity of giving information to the House upon the two points raised by the honourable and gallant Member. With regard to the first, I may refer him to the Answer which I gave last Tuesday to the hon. Member for the Ludlow Division of Shropshire;†and with regard to the second, to my reply on Thursday to the hon. and gallant Member for St. Andrew's Burghs.‡
