HC Deb 27 July 1927 vol 209 cc1208-9
3. Colonel DAY

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received any information from the British representatives at Shanghai to the effect that the Customs at Shanghai, under the instructions from the Nanking Government, have refused permission to ship consignments of specie to other ports; and can he give full particulars?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for West Willesden (Mr. Viant) on the 21st of July.

Colonel DAY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether his information shows that it is intended to place a virtual embargo on silver there?


The facts were stated by the Under-Secretary in a reply to which I ask the hon. Member to be good enough to refer.
