HC Deb 20 September 1948 vol 456 cc500-1
40. Mr. M. Lindsay

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether compensation has been arranged for by the Chinese Government in respect of recent damage to British property in Canton.

Mr. Mayhew

No, Sir. No progress has, I regret, been made in the matter. Negotiations are still proceeding.

Mr. Teeling

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this Question has been asked pretty frequently over the last six months, and we always get the same answer? It is not all that difficult to contact the Chinese Government and get an answer?
