HC Deb 17 June 1907 vol 176 c154

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the cash value to the Transvaal of the Imperial guarantee of the loan of £5,000,000; and how much does this represent per head of the Chinese coolies which are to be repatriated.


The saving to the Transvaal from the British guarantee which has been promised cannot be known until after the loan has been floated. When that event has taken place the hon. Member will be able himself to make the calculation which excites his curiosity or any other calculation of an equally serious and useful character.
