§ 70. Mr. Lees-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any recent communications have passed between His Majesty's Government and the Japanese Government with the object of securing, subject to the reservation of China's sovereign rights, a free field for all Powers wishing to trade in and with China?
§ The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Eden)
No, Sir. This matter has not lately formed the subject of representations to the Japanese Government. His Majesty's Government are, however, satisfied that the Japanese Government are fully aware of their views on the subject.
