I desire to ask the Minister of the Interior (Mr. Roche) what the position is with regard to the Hindu immigrants, who, I understand, arrived at Vancouver some days ago. I am told by the Prime Minister that the law will be enforced. What I am anxious to know is, will the clause of the immigration law which takes into the control of the Government, to the exclusion of the courts, the right to deal with immigrants, be acted upon?
Mr. ROGHiE: I have been out of the city for a couple of days. I asked this morning if anything new 'had arisen in connection with the Hindus, who, I believe, are about a mile outside the port of Vancouver and are undergoing a thorough examination by the officials of the department. The Order in Council passed some time ago prohibiting the immigration of labourers will, of course, be called into requisition .in this case, .and absolutely
acted upon and enforced. That is what the hon. gentleman refers to, is it not?
