HC Deb 17 June 1907 vol 176 c153

I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any official information to the effect that General Botha has decided not to re-enact the Chinese Labour Ordinance; and, in the event of this being the case, could he state the date of expiration of the first contract and the number of Chinese to be repatriated on that date.


No, Sir, we have no information on these matters at present except the Press reports of General Botha's speech in the Transvaal Parliament.
