HC Deb 20 December 1932 vol 273 c905
37. Mr. COCKS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the difficulty felt by the United States of America Government in accepting the invitation recently proposed in the Assembly of the League by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to consult with the Assembly Committee of Nineteen as to methods for a solution of the Sino-Japanese conflict unless the basis for the proposed consultation is first defined by an Assembly resolution stating that no member of the League will recognise Manchukuo, and in view of the importance of securing American cooperation, as well as in view of the Assembly resolution of 11th March and of the terms of the report of the League commission of inquiry, the Government will press at Geneva for an Assembly resolution pledging the members of the League not to recognise Manchukuo?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams) yesterday.


Can the hon. Gentleman say whether any communication on the subject has been received from the American Government?


Not without notice.
