§ 29. Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government accepts the declaration of the East Hopei autonomous area as superseding the provisions of the Tangku truce between China and Japan?
§ 30. Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received from the British chargé d'affaires at Peking any information as to the recognition or non-recognition by Japan of the terms of the Tangka truce respecting the policing of the demilitarised zone by the Chinese Government?
§ Mr. EDEN
According to my information the terms of the truce laid upon the Chinese authorities the duty of maintaining law and order in the demilitarised zone. I gather that, owing to division of effective authority, difficulties are being encountered in this connection, but I have no information that the terms of the truce are not recognised as binding by the Japanese Government.
