§ MR. SMEATON (Stirlingshire)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether the Amir of Afghanistan has yet signified his assent to the Afghan articles of the Anglo-Russian Agreement.
THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. CHARLES HOB-HOUSE,) Bristol, E.
Perhaps I may be allowed to answer this Question in the absence of the Under-Secretary. The Answer is in the negative.
