HC Deb 12 December 1878 vol 243 c638

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether anything has been yet settled with regard to the 3rd clause of the 3rd section of the Chefoo Convention; and when the Papers relating to this subject will be presented to the House?


Sir, nothing is as yet settled with regard to the clause in question. Sir Thomas Wade is visiting India on his way to Pekin to confer with the Viceroy on the subject, and it is hoped the Convention will soon be completed. Further Papers will be laid on the Table when a final arrangement has been arrived at,
