§ 90. Mr. FELL
asked if there is any department in India which superintends the emigration of the native population of that country; and if it will be arranged that shipments of large numbers of natives to other countries or colonies or dependencies should not be allowed until it is ascertained that such natives will be allowed to land in that country?
§ Mr. C. ROBERTS
The Indian Emigration Act provides for Government superintendence only over such natives of India as emigrate under an agreement to labour for hire in countries beyond the limits of India. There is under existing law no power to regulate the movements of emigrants who have not entered into labour contracts.
