§ MR. BOTTOMLEY (Hackney, S.)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will lay upon the Table a copy of the Chinese translation of the repatriation notice now being issued to the coolies working in the Transvaal mines. Will the hon. Gentleman also lay on the Table a copy of the Chinese translation, so that we may have an opportunity of examining it and seeing if thore are any terminological inexactitudes?
§ * MR. CHURCHILL
If the hon. Member wishes to impart an element of humour to our proceedings, he should select a somewhat more original point. The Secretary of State will ask that a copy of the notice in the Chinese language should be sent by mail from South Africa, in order that the hon. Member may have an opportunity of comparing it with the English version, and of forming an opinion for himself upon the style and accuracy of the translation.
