§ 3. Mr. LOOKER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the Colony of Hong 1398 Kong is only 90 miles from Canton, and that many questions necessarily arise affecting the interests of Hong Kong which can only be dealt with by the Canton authorities, he will sanction direct communication taking place between the Government of Hong Kong and the Chinese authorities in Canton?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. Amery)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply. I do not consider that special arrangements of this nature are either necessary or desirable at the present time. If and when negotiations for the termination of the boycott are resumed, the Governor will no doubt suggest to me in what manner they can best be facilitated.
