HC Deb 15 November 1926 vol 199 c1532

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Minister-designate to China, who left London on 22nd October, is bound for Peking; whether he will present his letters of credence upon arrival in Peking; if so, to what authority he will present them, seeing that there is no President of the Republic of China; and whether any instructions have been issued to His Majesty's Minister-designate as to entering into relations with any Government in China other than the Government at Peking?


Mr. Lampson is proceeding to Peking. The second and third parts of the question were fully answered in a reply to the hon. Member for Camberwell North on the 11th November. As regards the fourth part, no special instructions have been issued, but the right hon. Gentleman may perhaps be glad to have his attention called to the answer given by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary to the hon. Member for Willesden West, also on the 11th instant.
