HC Deb 04 February 1929 vol 224 c1401
55. Mr. LOOKER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the changes announced by the Chinese authorities at Hankow in the administration of the ex-Russian and ex-German concessions; whether he is aware that large British interests exist in the concessions referred to which are likely to be prejudiced by the change which has been announced; and will he state whether he proposes to take any and, if so, what steps in the matter?


I would ask my hon. Friend to refer to the reply returned to the Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Wardlaw-Milne) on 24th January. It is with the object of avoiding prejudice to the British interests in the two areas referred to that the question of future foreign representation is now being discussed.
