HC Deb 12 July 1900 vol 85 cc1305-6
MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he can state whether an understanding or agreement has been come to between Great Britain and Japan in connection with the situation in China.


The communications which have passed between Her Majesty's Government and Japan relate only to the prompt despatch of troops, arid those communications will be laid on the Table with the Papers.

MR. MACLEAN (Cardiff)

Can the right hon. Gentleman say who is going to pay the expenses of the Japanese troops?


Order, order! Notice of that question should be given.
