§ 3. Mr. CHORLTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any other Powers and, if so, which, are sending financial experts to China to advise their respective Governments on the situation there?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Samuel Hoare)
As soon as the Chinese Government had been informed of the appointment of Sir Frederick Leith-Ross, His Majesty's Government communicated with the United States, French, Japanese and Italian Governments and expressed their hope that these Governments would take similar action. I have not as yet received any intimation of their intentions in this respect.
§ 4. Mr. CHORLTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs for what purpose Sir Frederick Leith-Ross is being sent to China; and whether he can give any further details than those contained in the announcement issued by his Department?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I would refer my hon. Friend to the first paragraph of the statement which I made on the 17th June in reply to a question put by my hon. 782 Friend the Member for Lincoln (Mr. Liddall) to which I have nothing to add.
§ Mr. CHORLTON
When will it be possible to obtain any further information relevant to this visit? I am aware of what has been said, and I am trying to get to know something more about it.
§ Sir S. HOARE
I have given all the relevant information. If the hon. Member will tell me what further information he requires, I will see whether I can get it for him.
