§ Mr. W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he had any information to show that an expedition proposes to set out from Russia for purposes of exploration and research in Thibet?
§ Mr. BUCHANAN
His Majesty's Government have been informed that the Russian Government have no knowledge of any expedition proposing to explore Thibet, and that a statement that has appeared in the Russian papers concerning such an expedition has been officially contradicted.
§ Mr. MITCHELL-THOMSON
Is it the view of the Government of India that the effective prohibition extended to expeditions from India to Thibet should not apply also to expeditions from Russia to Thibet?
