§ MR. SEYMOUR ORMSBY-GORE () Shropshire, Oswestry
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, if there are any restrictions placed by His Majesty's Government upon the emigration of the natives from the British Central African protectorate and Uganda to the new South African Colonies; and, if so, if the Government will take steps to remove these restrictions.
§ LORD CRANBORNE
Under the regulations of British Central Africa and Uganda no recruiting of labour may take place without the permission of His Majesty's Commissioner. There are other provisions in the labour regulations enacted for the protection of the natives. Hitherto, labour recruiting in these Protectorates for South Africa has not been permitted, but the subject is now under consideration.
