HC Deb 08 June 1899 vol 72 c630
MR. LAMBERT (Devon, South Molton)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the clause in the Anglo-Russian Agreement, that the Russian Government is at liberty to support concessions for a railway from the main Manchurian line in a south-westerly direction, implies that the British Government will offer no objection to the construction of a railway joining Peking with the main Manchurian line.


The clause referred to in the Anglo-Russian Agreement does not, in the opinion of Her Majesty's Government, cover the question of railway communication with Peking.
