HC Deb 10 March 1898 vol 54 c1229
MR. W. JONES (Carnarvon, Arfon)

On behalf of the hon. Member for Northampton (Mr. Labouchere), I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Manchuria is an integral part of China, or whether it is a separate territory under the rule of the Emperor of China?


Manchuria is not one of the 18 Provinces of China proper, but is certainly an integral part of the Emperor's dominions.
