§ LORD LAMINGTON
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether the Indian Government have yet decided upon recognising the State of Kyang Kheng as tributary to the Burmese Shan State of Kyang Tung?
§ *VISCOUNT CROSS
My Lords, there is no doubt this is a very important question, and I am very glad the noble Lord has brought the matter forward. The Government of India are at present considering the matter; they have agents there looking into it, but they have not yet had an opportunity of considering their Report. I hope to be able next Session to give a better answer upon the subject.
*THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY
I would ask the noble Viscount whether the Commissioners are making progress in settling the boundaries with the Siamese Government?
