HC Deb 15 June 1903 vol 123 c932
MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that an order has recently been issued to open and to examine all export packages passing from India across the Tibetan frontier; and whether the Government of India will take steps to prevent this interference with trade along this route.

(Answered by Secretary Lord George Hamilton.) The Government of India have found it necessary to establish posts on our side of the frontier to prevent the export of military stores to Tibet. I see no reason to disapprove these precautionary measures.
