§ 3. Sir W. BULL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, if he can inform the House of the exact position of 1543 the Chino-Japanese negotiations regarding the new demands put forward to the Pekin authorities by the Tokio Government; whether any progress has been made and, if so, what; and whether China has defined her position generally in respect to the various requests?
§ Sir E. GREY
I can only refer the hon. Member to the reply given to previous questions on this subject, that His Majesty's Government are not in a position at present to make a statement in regard to these negotiations which are taking place between two other Powers.
