Debate resumed from 18th March (vide page 755), on motion by Mr. Watson -

That this House records its grave objection to the introduction of Chinese labour into the Transvaal until a referendum of the white population of the Colony has been taken on the subject, or responsible government granted.

Upon which Mr. Johnson had moved, by way of amendment -

That all the words after the word "House," line i, be omitted, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the following words : - "views with extreme regret the proposal to import Chinese labour into the Transvaal, regarding such a step as prejudicial to the best interests of the Colony."
