§ MR. WEIR
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.
§ MR. BRODRICK
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.
