asked the Under-Secretary of State for, Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the change of Government in China, he will make representations anew as to the default in the Tickers and Marconi loan issues and as to the grounds on which the additional security suggested for these loans was refused?

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give any information to the House as to the present position in China, and particularly as to the present relations of Wu Pei Fu and the Southern President, Sun Yat Sen, and as to the proposals of Wu Pei Fu to hold elections or to summon a constituent assembly for all China?

I have nothing to add to the full and apparently accurate information which has already appeared in the Press.
