§ 11. Mr. Peyton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how much of the financial aid supplied to the United Kingdom by the United States Government has been used to finance the shipment of warlike stores to China.
§ Mr. Peyton
Will my right hon. and learned Friend inform the American Government of the intense and widespread resentment felt in this country, and in this House, at the vicious and slanderous allegations made by Senator McCarthy that this country has been utilising American aid to finance the sinews of war for Red China?
§ Mr. A. Henderson
Is it not a fact that this country has never shipped any warlike stores to China?
§ Mr. Shinwell
But if the American Government are aware of the facts, is not it possible to convey to them the suggestion that they might in turn convey the information to Senator McCarthy?
§ Mr. Nabarro
Is not it a fact that very large quantities of warlike stores which have been sent to Russia in the course of normal exports have found their way to Red China—notably heavy electrical equipment including generators which right hon. Gentlemen opposite were responsible for sending?
