HC Deb 28 March 1904 vol 132 c836
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state the present strength of the armed force accompanying the Mission in Tibet, the number of coolies and other persons engaged, the cost per week of the Mission, and the number of animals lost by death or otherwise.


I can add nothing to my reply to the Question of the hon. Member for King's Lynn on the 4th February last† as to the strength of the force accompanying the Mission. I have no further information at present regarding the number of coolies employed, the weekly cost of the Mission, or the losses of animals.


What about the Yaks?
