HC Deb 22 February 1927 vol 202 cc1558-9
Mr. RAMSAY MacDONALD (by Private Notice)

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give any further information as to the agreement in respect of the British concession at Kiukiang?


Yes. An agreement was signed at Hankow on the 19th February in regard to the British concession at Kiukiang. Its terms are as follow:

"Agreement relative to the British concession at Kiukiang.

"A settlement on similar lines to that concluded in the case of the Hankow concession will immediately be made in the case of the concession at Kiukiang. If any direct losses due to the action or culpable negligence of the agents of the Nationalist Government were suffered by British subjects during the recent disturbances at Kiukiang, such losses will be compensated by the Nationalist Government.'

Mr. O'Malley is now proceeding to Kiukiang to discuss the question of compensation with His Majesty's Consul there.


Does that refer to Hankow? Will the nationals in Hankow receive the same compensation as those at Kiukiang?


I understand that at Kiukiang there was intensive looting, which was not the case at Hankow.


Oh! It was.
