§ 7. Mr. STEWART
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any official information showing that a German marine was arrested under suspicious circumstances on the premises of the electric works of the municipality of Shanghai; that the trial of this marine, who was acquitted, was held in secret in a private German House before the Dutch Consul-General assisted by two German Consular officials; if so, if he will say whether His Majesty's Government are content with this form of procedure; and, if not, whether they propose to take any steps in the matter?
§ Lord R. CECIL
I have seen in the Press the report referred to by the hon. Member, but I have received no official information with regard to it.
