HC Deb 21 May 1896 vol 41 c66
MR. EDWARD MOON (St. Pancras, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs—(1) whether he has any information as to the truth of the statement that additional barracks are being erected at Chantabun-Paknam for French soldiers; and, (2) whether he is aware that the Siamese Government has already long since complied with the conditions upon which the French Government agreed, under Article 6 of the Convention of 3rd October, 1893, and the procès-verbal of even date (appended to the Convention), to evacuate Chantabun?


Her Majesty's Government have received no information on the matter mentioned in the first paragraph. It is understood that there are some points arising out of the Convention of 1893, upon which negotiations are still proceeding between the French and Siamese Governments.
