§ COLONEL J. M. DENNY (Kilmarnock Burghs)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether any further progress has been made in the negotiations for obtaining compensation for the relatives of the British subjects who lost their lives in the Kow-Shing, which vessel was sunk by a Japanese cruiser during the war between China and Japan?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. GEORGE CURZON,) Lancashire, Southport
Delay has been caused by the illness of the Chinese Minister, with whom the negotiations are to be conducted. The Minister being happily convalescent, they will now be proceeded with.
