HC Deb 04 February 1929 vol 224 c1402

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can give any information as to the employment of money in connection with the China Indemnity Fund since the passing of the China Indemnity (Application) Act of 1925?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Godfrey Locker-Lampson)

An account of the Indemnity Fund has been submitted to Parliament at the end of each financial year in accordance with the Act. Since 31st March last a sum of £900 has been advanced from the Fund in order to meet the urgent needs of six Chinese Government students from Shantung Province who had been left stranded in this country. No further expenditure is contemplated at the moment, but with the improvement of the situation in China I hope to see definite progress made before long.
