§ MR. JOSEPH WALTON
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the net receipts of the Shan-hai-Kwan, Niuchwang, Hsin-min-tung Railway are allocated as security to British bondholders, His Majesty's Government have taken any steps for the purpose of safeguarding these lines and maintaining the present management and control.
§ EARL PERCY
The answer is in the negative. The Shan-hai-Kwan, Niuchwang, Hsin-min-tung Railway is a Chinese line and is protected by Chinese railway guards and troops.
