§ MR. WEDGWOOD (Newcastle-under-Lyme)
To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies what the last figures are as to the number of Chinese working on the Rand under the Chinese Labour Ordinance; and when the last Chinaman will cease to be so employed.
(Answered by Colonel Seely.) I understand that on 31st October there were 12,317 Chinese employed. The November figures have not yet reached the Colonial Office. The latest term of labour under indenture will expire in January, 1910.
