HC Deb 08 April 1913 vol 51 cc973-4
5. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give the names of the British firms owning the stores of opium now accumulated at Shanghai and Hong Kong; whether he has received any representations, written or oral, from any of these firms; and whether any promise has been given as to the course which the British Government intend to pursue?


I am unable to give the hon. Member a list of the firms owning opium stocks at Shanghai and Hong Kong. The answer to the second part of the question is in the affirmative and to third part in the negative.
