HC Deb 19 November 1908 vol 196 c1398

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has yet received from the Governor of Hong Kong his proposals for dealing with the opium traffic there; and whether anything has yet been actually done by way of suppressing the opium dens there, as called for by His Majesty's Government in their telegram of May last.


Further investigation has led the Governor to modify his proposals, and I understand that his final recommendations are now on their way. Meanwhile it has not been possible to take action.
