HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1504

The following Question stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Sir JOHN WARDLAW-MILNE:

5. To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the present position regarding the "Central China Post"; and what action has been taken by the British Consul-General at Hankow, in view of the fact that statements have been made to the Consulate which prove conclusively the political character of the disturbance?

Sir John Wardlaw-Milne

In view of what has happened during the past few days, I do not expect a detailed answer to my Question.

Mr. Law

The latest information received suggested that the strike was continuing. Owing, however, to recent events in the Far East, it is no longer possible to obtain information as to the position.
