§ 11. Mr. A. HENDERSON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the criticisms made by an official spokesman of the Japanese Government in relation to the investigation at Peking into the charges made against two British soldiers; and whether he can make a statement?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Eden)
I am informed that criticisms of the conduct of the recent investigation were made by officials of the Japanese Embassy in Peking, and reproduced in a local newspaper on 4th July. His Majesty's Ambassador at Tokyo has been instructed to bring this matter to the notice of the Japanese Government.
§ Mr. HENDERSON
Is it not a fact that the procedure followed in this investigation was similar to that well-established in this country?
