§ 18. Mr. LOOKER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will ascertain from His Majesty's Minister at Peking whether the cheque handed over by the Hankow Government in settlement of the compensation agreed on for the looting which took place at Kiukiang has been presented for payment; and, if so, whether it has been duly honoured?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
I have telegraphed asking His Majesty's Minister for the facts in connection with the alleged dishonouring of this cheque, but no reply has yet reached me.
