HC Deb 18 July 1929 vol 230 c628
Mr. SMITHERS (by Private Notice)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will give the House the latest available information with regard to diplomatic relations between the Soviet and the Chinese Governments?

The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Arthur Henderson)

As I informed the hon. Member yesterday, I have telegraphed to His Majesty's Minister at Peking asking for the latest information. No reply has reached me up to the present.


In view of the fact that in the "Times" of this morning, it is suggested that diplomatic relations have been broken off, are we to understand that the Foreign Office has no information which they can give to the House upon this most important subject?


That is exactly what I have told the House.
