§ MR. MALCOLM (Suffolk, Stowmarket)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs a Question of which I have given him private notice—namely, whether there is any foundation for the report that His Majesty's Consul-General at Shanghai associated himself with the demand that the Russian cruiser, "Mandjur," should leave that port.
§ EARL PERCY
No, Sir. His Majesty's Consul-General took no part whatever in the demand for the withdrawal of the "Mandjur."
