There are eleven market gardens in Wellington city worked by twelve Chinese, the total area being eleven acres. The Inspector of Nuisances states, says the Post, that the buildings in the gardens, are, as a rule, in an insanitary condition, Councillor Barber assured the Public Works Committee of the City Council on Monday evening that there was a nuisance from many of the gardens tilled by Chinese. Councillor Lindsay urged that the Chinese should be compelled to prevent smells coming from the gardens. Councillor Barber said that Europeans would not be allowed to inhabit such premises as were now used by Chinese gardeners. Councillor Harcourt said that no steps were taken against Europeans who used manure in their gardens, and unless the manure was very offensive no steps should be taken against the Chinamen. Of course the Council could proceed against them if their houses were not in a habitable state. After further discussion it was decided to recommend that the Council should insist that the Chinese should make the same sanitary provisions as Europeans are obliged to make.
