§ 38. Mr. WEDGWOOD
asked how many of His Majesty's troops were killed or wounded in the late fighting in Johannesburg; and what troops were actually engaged in the shootings?
§ Mr. TENNANT
Three officers and twenty-four other ranks were wounded. I have not yet received precise information as to the units present at the points where conflict occurred.
§ Mr. MORRELL
Is it part of the regular duties of these men to go to the aid of the 1051 civil power in such a case, and if not, is any sanction obtained from the authorities at home before they are so employed?
§ 73. Mr. WEDGWOOD
asked if the Secretary of State for the Colonies will say how many so-called agitators are now in custody in South Africa either sentenced or awaiting trial; how many of these are trade union officials and how many women; and, if any have been sentenced, will he inquire under what law they have been sentenced and lay copies of that law upon the Table?
I have no present information on the subject. If and when I receive it I will inform the hon. Member.
