§ 5. Sir J. D. REES
asked the actual alignment proposed of the Trans-Persian Railway according to the plan worked out by the Société d'Etudes; whether there is any proof that this plan has been accepted by the Russian and Persian authorities; and whether it has the approval or consent of the British and British-Indian Governments?
§ Mr. ACLAND
No plan has as yet been worked out by the Société d'Etudes, the question of alignment being still under discussion between the several Governments.
