HC Deb 13 July 1904 vol 137 cc1466-7
MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether, looking to the Imperial character which the expedition into Tibet has assumed, he will move His Majesty's Government to relieve India of the cost involved.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) The Answer is in the negative. The Tibetan question is essentially an Indian interest.
