§ MR. THEODORE TAYLOR
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.
§ COLONEL SEELY
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.
