§ 14. Mr. SAMUEL SAMUEL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the present Chief Inspector of the Salt Revenue in China is retiring; and will he assure the House that His Majesty's Government will support the nomination of a British subject for this position so as to maintain the prestige of Great Britain?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
I understand that no final decision has yet been come to with regard to the retirement of the Chief Inspector of the Salt Revenues. The second part of the question does not therefore at present arise.
§ Mr. SAMUEL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the intrigues going on to out the British and replace him, not by the Chinese, but other foreigners?
