HC Deb 19 April 1932 vol 264 c1385
53. Mr. COCKS

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he has any information regarding the effect on British trade of the Japanese occupation of Manchuria?

Mr. JOHN COLVILLE (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

Information received by my Department is to the effect that United Kingdom trade with Manchuria has not been seriously affected by the Sino-Japanese conflict in that territory. The position is, however, being closely watched.
