§ MR. H. J. WILSON (York, W.R., Holmfirth)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether lie has observed the statement of the quantity of Malwa opium imported into Ningpo in 1898 on page 9 of the Consular Report on the trade of Ningpo fur 1898, just issued, and, as that is apparently an important error, could he state what is the correct quantity.
§ MR. BRODRICK
The amount given in the Return as imported in 1898 is clearly an error. I am afraid I cannot give the correct figure from information in my possession, but inquiry will be made at once.
