HC Deb 22 April 1929 vol 227 c633W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet received the Report on the mui-tsai question of Hong Kong; and whether it is proposed to publish this Report at an early date?


My right hon. Friend has received a despatch from the Governor of Hong Kong. A number of points in connection with the enforcement of the Ordinance passed in 1923 to abolish the system require elucidation, and he is asking the Governor by telegraph for further information in writing. My right hon. Friend proposes, when his reply has been received, to lay papers before the House.
