§ 10. Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress has been made with the negotiations between Sir Miles Lampson and the Chinese National Government regarding extra-territoriality?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
Sir Miles Lamp-son reports that progress has been made 187 on several of the points under negotiations; but I am not yet in a position to make a detailed statement.
Mr. WARD LAW-MILNE
Is it quite clear that this country will be in no way committed to the treaty which the right hon. Gentleman has promised to bring before the House, if a treaty is in fact the result of these negotiations, until Parliament has been consulted?
The hon. Gentleman must know that there is a certain form of commitment before we can even bring the treaty before this House. It must either be initialed or signed, but I have already said that there will be an opportunity for full Debate when it comes up for ratification.
