§ 2. Commander MARSDEN
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will cause inquiries to be 313 made of the Chinese Government whether it would be more convenient for the despatch of business for His Majesty's Minister to be permanently stationed at Nanking?
§ Sir J. SIMON
No, Sir. The question of the best means of maintaining contact between His Majesty's Minister and the Chinese National Government receives constant and careful consideration. At present I do not see sufficient ground for altering the existing arrangements.
