HC Deb 12 June 1906 vol 158 c817

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the Chinese labour cartoons, issued by Radical agencies at the last general election, are being reproduced in a popular journal in Peking; and whether, in view of the fact that these pictorial inexactitudes are calculated to inflame Chinese resentment against British residents in China, and interfere with British trade with that country, he will represent to the Chinese Government the desirability of stopping the further circulation of these cartoons.
