HC Deb 03 December 1908 vol 197 cc1665-6
DR. RUTHERFORD (Middlesex, Brentford)

I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for India whether he is aware that British-Indian traders are being systematically boycotted by their white rivals in the Transvaal, the boycott extending to Dutch farmers who prefer to deal with Indians in preference to European traders; and whether the Secretary of State proposes to take any action in the matter.


No, Sir, the Secretary of State has no official information of any such boycott as that described in the Question.
