HC Deb 14 May 1941 vol 371 c1190
8. Mr. Rickards

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can make any statement on the relations between His Majesty's Government and the National Government of China at Chungking?

Mr. Eden

The relations between oar two Governments remain, I am happy to say, on terms of the closest cordiality and co-operation. Engaged as we are in a life and death struggle against aggression in Europe and in the Middle East, the efforts of China to resist foreign domination and to preserve her independence have a natural appeal to the people of this country. His Majesty's Government have done what they could in the past, and will continue to do what they can in the future, to help China to maintain her independence.
