HC Deb 02 February 1949 vol 460 c1664
23. Mr. Piratin

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in repatriating the 800 Chinese during 1948 from Malaya to China, the repatriates were consulted about the political part of China to which they preferred to return; and whether these wishes were taken into consideration on their repatriation.

Mr. Creech Jones

Chinese repatriates are consulted about the port to which they wish to be sent, and their wishes are taken into consideration.
