HC Deb 25 April 1899 vol 70 c518
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.


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.
