HC Deb 20 March 1941 vol 370 cc292-3
60. Mr. Denville

(for Mr. R. Morgan) asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government associates itself with the declaration of President Roosevelt in favour of all-out aid for China, so far as we can render it at the present time?

Mr. Butler

His Majesty's Government have noted with sympathy and interest President Roosevelt's recent statement on the subject of China. As I informed my hon. Friend the member for Kidderminister (Sir J. Wardlaw-Milne) on 30th January last, it is the policy of His Majesty's Government to maintain the closest contact with the United States Government in all matters of common interest.

Mr. R. Gibson

Can the right hon. Gentleman say what is the position with regard to the Burma Road?

Mr. Butler

I should want notice of that question.
