asked the Minister of Health whether he is in a position to state the result of his inquiries into the circumstances relating to the return, a body, of nearly 100 men from the labour colony, Hollesley Bay; and whether it is now possible to make the conditions at the labour colony sufficiently tolerable to induce men to stay there?

Of the 85 men who left this colony, 37 have applied for leave to return. There has been no further trouble, and there are now 130 men in residence. I do not think that there is any good ground for criticising the general conditions existing at the colony.
