§ 10. Mr. WATT
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the United States of America was one of the Powers which agreed, at the time of the establishment of the present administration in China, to act in concert as to the recognition of the Republic there; if so, whether the United States of America has now withdrawn from that concert; whether it has formally recognised the Republic or proposes to do so shortly; and whether individual action will now be taken by this country in the way of recognition?
§ Mr. ACLAND
I can give no information as to the past or present intentions of the United States Government in regard to the recognition of the Chinese Republic, but as far as I am aware they have not yet recognised. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
