HC Deb 07 July 1919 vol 117 cc1424-5W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any action has been taken on the petition from the Nyasaland Chamber of Commerce regarding the policy pursued in regard to native labour?

Lieut.-Colonel AMERY

The Acting-Governor was requested to inform the Nyasaland Chamber of Commerce that no proposal for the organised recruiting of labour for service outside Nyasaland was before the Secretary of State, that the chamber might rest assured that any such proposal would receive the most careful consideration before approval was given, but that the Secretary of State was unable to give any definite pledge with regard to the future.
