HC Deb 03 December 1908 vol 197 cc1668-9
MR. O'GRADY (Leeds, E.)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been drawn to the case of four British-Indian boys who were punished as prohibited immigrants for entering the Transvaal with their parents, three to a fine of £15 or two months imprisonment and one to a fine of £5 or fourteen days hard labour; whether he is aware that three of the boys were ten, eleven, and twelve years of age and that they were all sent to gaol; and whether he can state the number of British-Indian children that have been sent to gaol for a similar offence.


NO, Sir, but inquiry shall be made.
