HC Deb 01 December 1909 vol 13 c477

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Immigration Law of the Transvaal, read in conjunction with the Registration Law of that Colony, constitutes a barrier against the immigration into that Colony of British-Indians, by reason of their race, irrespective of any educational or property qualifications they may possess; and whether such legislation exists in any other part of His Majesty's dominions?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Colonel Seely)

Yes, Sir. Even more stringent legislation has existed in the late Orange Free State and the present Orange River Colony for many years past.
