HC Deb 16 December 1908 vol 198 c1853
MR. T. F. RICHARDS (Wolverhampton, W.)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been drawn to the treatment of a British subject named Robert Harris, who was not allowed to land at the Port of Sydney, New South Wales, when endeavouring to visit London, and who has written fully, explaining the circumstances, to the Secretary of State for the Colonies; and whether he has made the necessary inquiries concerning this case, and, if so, can he say what action, if any, his Department intends to take in the matter.


The Secretary of State recently received a Memorial from Mr. Harris, and he has asked the Commonwealth Government to be good enough to furnish him with a Report on the circumstances of the case.
