HC Deb 28 March 1904 vol 132 c837

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether any information has yet been received of the whereabouts of the new Amban, Imperial Chinese Resident to Lhasa; if so, will he state when he is expected to reach that city; and has any communication been received by Colonel Younghusband from the present Amban or the Tibetan officials accompanying him.


The new Amban is reported to have arrived at Lhasa on the 11th February last. I have not heard that Colonel Younghusband has received any communication from him or from any Tibetan officials who may be accompanying him.
