§ MAJOR SEELY (Isle of Wight)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, before sanctioning the Ordinance for the introduction of Chinese indentured labour into the Transvaal, ha will insert a clause naming a date at which such importation shall cease.
§ MAJOR SEELY
Am I to understand that the Government have abandoned 298 their intention of making this importation of a temporary nature as promised in the course of the debate on the subject?
§ *MR. SPEAKER
That Question is irregular, inasmuch as it has reference to a debate of the present session, and, therefore, cannot be asked.
