§ MR. F. S. STEVENSON (Suffolk, Eye)
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether it is true that Germany has annexed, or occupied, or acquired, a protectorate over the Island of Chusan, or one of its Dependencies; and, whether such an act would be regarded by Her Majesty's Government as constituting a violation of the Convention between Great Britain and China, signed on the 4th of April, 1846?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) (Manchester, N.E.)
No such information has reached Her Majesty's Government.
§ MR. F. S. STEVENSON
asked the right hon. Gentleman if he would answer the latter part of the Question?
