§ MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if the Tibetan Expedition has yet been recognised by the Dalai Lama, or if lie has any information to show that the expedition will have to advance beyond Gyangtse.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
The hon. Member will have seen from the Viceroy's telegram of the 25th April, which has been published in the newspapers, that the Chinese Amban has written from Lhasa to Colonel Young-husband, expressing the intention of proceeding to Gyangtse accompanied by a representative of the Tibetan Government. Beyond this information, I have nothing to add to the answer I gave a similar Question by the hon. Member on Monday last.†
