HC Deb 17 February 1879 vol 243 c1311

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether he has any objection to lay upon the Table a Copy of the Minutes of the Council of the Secretary of State for India which refer to the Chefoo Convention, and a Copy of the opinions of Members of the Council on the subject, if any such were put on record?


The negotiations with the Chinese Government with respect to the Chefoo Convention are still going on; and, therefore, it will be impossible at present to lay upon the Table the Papers asked for by the hon. Member.
