HC Deb 09 August 1898 vol 64 c662

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has yet received any information as to the reports that the Belgian Syndicate, which holds the concession for the Pekin-Hankow Railway, has transferred its rights to the Russo-Chinese Bank, whose capital has been mainly supplied by the Russian Government?


The information in our possession does not enable me to give an answer to the honourable Member's Question. But the agreement referred to is now under discussion with the Tsung-li-Yamen at Pekin, by whom it has lately been received from Shanghai.
