HC Deb 13 April 1877 vol 233 c1073

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If he can state when the Report of Mr. Grosvenor's Mission to Yunnan, and the Papers relating to the Convention concluded by Sir Thomas Wade with the Government of China, will be laid upon the Table?


in reply, said, the Papers had been printed and would have been in the hands of Members before now; but he had been waiting for a memorandum which Sir Thomas Wade was preparing with respect to the Chefoo Convention. He had seen Sir Thomas Wade that morning, and he hoped to have the memorandum in a very few days. After that he trusted there would be no delay in presenting the Papers.
