§ Mr. KEIR HARDIE
asked whether the proposed Ordinance for the regulation of clubs and organisations in Hong Kong is being viewed with apprehension by the leaders of the working classes there as being likely to be used for the suppression of bonâ fide trade unions organisations; and whether, before the Ordinance receives confirmation, especial care will be 1818 taken to safeguard the rights of the workers in this connection?
I have not yet seen the proposed Ordinance. I will give careful consideration to the point raised by the hon. Gentleman when the matter comes before me.
