HC Deb 07 June 1934 vol 290 c1081
59. Lieut.-Commander AGNEW

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is yet able to give any further information with regard to the request of the Chinese Government for the revision of the Treaty of Tientsin of 1858 and the Mackay Treaty of 1902?

A further note has just been received by His Majesty' Minister from the Chinese Government, but the text has not yet reached me.
