asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can state the policy of His Majesty's Government towards the question of the Boxer Indemnity Fund?

His Majesty's Government are in negotiation with the Chinese Government for the return of the accumulated and future instalments of the Boxer indemnity to the Chinese Government on terms in harmony with the report of the Advisory Committee set up under the China Indemnity (Application) Act, 1925. A draft agreement has been reached between His Majesty's Minister and the Chinese Minister for Foreign Affairs for the consideration of both Governments, and I am at present awaiting the text.
