§ MR. TREVELYAN (Yorkshire, W.R., Elland)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether, if fighting takes place as a consequence of the advance of the Political Mission into Tibet, the Government will recognise the expedition as a military one, and take the necessary steps to secure the consent of both Houses of Parliament, as required by law.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
His Majesty's Government will undoubtedly comply with the law as expressed in Sections 54 and 55 of the Act for the better government of India.
§ MR. LOUGH (Islington. W.)
And when shall we have the promised opportunity of debating the matter in this House?
