HC Deb 07 July 1899 vol 74 c171

On behalf of the hon. Member for the Wick Burghs, I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in consequence of the murder in China of the Rev. Mr. Fleming, a formal demand was made for the dismissal or recall of the Governor of Kweichau; and whether Her Majesty's Government still insist on that demand.


In reply to a question on this subject three days ago I stated that as two of the murderers had been executed, the Yamên had been informed that an extension of time would be granted for the apprehension of the head man.
