HC Deb 11 April 1927 vol 205 c9
61. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the text of the Note sent to the Nationalist Government of China with regard to the recent events at Nanking and elsewhere can now be comrminicated to Parliament; and whether he has any further information to give the House on this subject?


asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps have been taken in consequence of the recent events at Nanking?


I will answer these questions together. The United States, Japanese, French, Italian and British Governments have agreed the terms of a communication which was to be made to Mr. Chen and to General Chiang Kai-shek to-day. It would not be proper for me to disclose its terms before I learn of its actual presentation, but I will publish it as soon as possible. I think it may be possible to publish it tomorrow.
