HC Deb 19 March 1907 vol 171 c656
MR. ALDEN (Middlesex, Tottenham)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any information to the effect that resolutions have been passed at a large meeting of Indians in Durban, protesting against the manner in which the Dealers Licences Act was being enforced in various parts of Natal, and asking the Imperial Government to safeguard the right of British-Indian ratepayers to vote at the municipal elections; and, if so what action he proposes to take in the matter.


A copy of cable to the effect stated has been received from the South African British Indian Committee. The Secretary of State, as already stated, is in communication with the Natal Government on the subject.
