§ 8. Mr. MOREING
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give any information as to the protest made by the Chinese Government against the landing of a Japanese naval contingent at Tsingtao in connection with an industrial dispute?
§ Mr. EDEN
I understand that a protest on this subject was made to the Japanese Ambassador at Nanking on 3rd December, and that similar representations were also made to the Japanese Government by the Chinese Ambassador at Tokyo. I am informed that a settlement of this incident has now been reached as a result of local discussions.
