HC Deb 13 July 1909 vol 7 c1844

asked the Under-Secretary for the Colonies whether he can state the number of Chinese labourers still at work in the mines of the Transvaal; and when the next shipload is expected to leave South Africa on the return voyage to China?

Colonel SEELY

There were 5,378 Chinese in the Transvaal on 30th June; 2,330 were discharged for repatriation in June, but I have no information as to the date of sailing.
