I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will state the total number of crimes committed in South Africa by Chinese coolies up to 31st July, 1907, and the number of convictions for such crimes.

The total number of convictions (for all classes of offences) up to 31st January, 1907, was 24,223. No later figures are available.
