HC Deb 22 March 1905 vol 143 c803
MR. J. H. LEWIS (Flint Boroughs)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the amount of British capital invested in Baku and the district of which it is the commercial centre, the Government will, for the protection and promotion of British interests, establish a British Consulate at that place.


This matter has been considered by the Government, but so far no satisfactory arrangement has been come to with Russia.
