HC Deb 10 February 1932 vol 261 c827
12. Mr. COCKS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, seeing that since the proposals of His Majesty's Government and the Governments of the United States, France and Italy that there should be no further mobilisation of troops or other preparations for hostilities were received at Tokio the Japanese Government have ordered the despatch of another 10,000 troops to Shanghai, he proposes to take any action on the subject?


His Majesty's Government have deprecated the despatch of reinforcements in so far as it might lead to an aggravation of the situation. I trust that these fears will not be realised.
