HC Deb 03 March 1890 vol 341 c1638
MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any, and, if so, what, progress has been made in the de limitation of the respective protectorates of this country and of the Chinese Empire in the Shan States, under the provisions of the Treaty of 1886 between Her Majesty and the Sovereign of China; and whether it is the fact, as has been recently stated in the newspapers, that steps are being taken to determine certain questions of boundaries between British Burma and Siam?


No steps have been taken to demarcate the frontier between China and Burma; but surveys are being made by the two Governments concerned of the frontiers of Siam and Burma.
