12. Mr. TEMPLE MORRIS (for Captain ARTHUR EVANS)
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps have been taken to ensure that the extra-territorial rights under the treaties between China and Great Britain, which guarantee the liberties of life and the security of property for British citizens in Chinese territory, still hold good in Manchuria in spite of the Japanese military occupation; and what is the position of a British subject in Manchuria at the present time?
§ Sir J. SIMON
No special steps have been found necessary to secure the treaty position of British subjects in Manchuria, which remains unaltered.
