§ 6. Sir J. D. REES
asked whether the trade route between Khanikin and Kermanshah has officially been declared to be unsafe; if so, by what authority; and what steps are being, or will be, taken to forward 6,000 loads of British goods lying at the former station on the route?
§ Mr. ACLAND
His Majesty's Minister at Teheran has reported to me that the Kermanshah road is insecure, and that he has brought the facts to the notice of the Persian Government, warning them that they will be held responsible for losses which may be incurred by British trade interests.
