HC Deb 24 July 1902 vol 111 c1147

To ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the French and German Governments have established postal services of their own in Chinese territory; and, if so, whether such proceeding has received the sanction of the Chinese Government.

(Answered by Lord Cranborne.) Post offices are maintained in China by France and Germany, also by Great Britain, Japan, and Russia. His Majesty's Government are unaware whether the Chinese Government have sanctioned the French and German post offices.
