§ 33. Mr. E. Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement about the present position of Her Majesty's representative in Peking, with particular regard to the number of interviews he has had with the head of the Chinese People's Government and the Chinese Foreign Minister.
§ Mr. Eden
Her Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires is accepted in that capacity by the Chinese Government and, to quote their words, as "the British Government's negotiating representative." He has had interviews with the Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs but not with the head of the Chinese Government or the Chinese Foreign Minister.
§ Mr. Johnson
May I ask my right hon. Friend for his assurance that until Her Majesty's representative is given full and proper recognition by the People's Government in China, and until that Government end their war of aggression in Korea, Her Majesty's Government will not in any way support the application of that Government for representation on the Security Council of the United Nations?
