§ MR. ECROYD
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether the attention of Her Majesty's Government has been directed to the desirability, in the interests of British commerce, of establishing a Consul at Kashgar?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
This question has been under the consideration of Her Majesty's Government; and it has been decided, after communication with the India Office, that the amount of British trade at Kashgar was not as yet sufficient to warrant the establishment of a Consul there. If the hon. Member has any facts which he wishes to bring to the notice of the Foreign Office, every attention will be given to them.
