§ MR. T. GIBSON BOWLES (Lynn Regis)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the statement telegraphed from Rangoon to the effect that 200 men of the 1st Burmah Rifles have left Mandalay to garrison Keng Kong; whether Keng Kong is outside any British territory or British protectorate; and whether there is any foundation for the statement thus telegraphed?
§ *SIR E. GREY
Keng Kong is not in British territory, but is the place where it was stated a short time ago that a French post was established. There is no intention whatever to send British troops there.
