HC Deb 28 January 1931 vol 247 c982W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when information will be issued as to arrangements made by other countries in dealing with the Chinese Boxer indemnity; and what was the reply given by the signatories to the Washington Treaty, 1922, when informed that preferential treatment was to be accorded to Great Britain in the purchase of railway and other material?


The information for which the right hon. Gentleman asks in the first part of the question is appended. With regard to the second part of the question, no communication has been received on this subject from any of the signatories to the Washington Treaty, to whom the text of the settlement was sent in November last.
