HC Deb 10 July 1935 vol 304 c310
15 and 16. Mr. LUNN

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies (1) whether he will call for a return of the number of visits paid by inspectors or Chinese protectorate officers to muit-sai in their employer's homes in the last six months of last year in Singapore and Penang and in each of the federated and unfederated Malay States;

(2) whether he will see that the Malayan Governments follow the example of the Hong-Kong Government and give the number of mui-tsai in those states in each of the half-yearly reports with effect from the beginning of this year; and whether he will see that much fuller information regarding mui-tsai is included in the reports?


I am asking the Governor and High Commissioner to furnish full information in his periodical reports, and to supply such a return as may be available of the visits paid to mui-tsai in the last six months of 1934.


Is the right hon. Gentleman asking that this information shall appear in all the reports?


That depends on what answer I receive.
