HL Deb 30 March 1936 vol 100 cc359-60

My Lords, I desire to put the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper.

[The Question was as follows:—To ask His Majesty's Government whether any further information has now been received with regard to the alleged use of force against student demonstrators in Shanghai in December, 1935, since the debate on this matter on the 5th February last.]


My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Earl Stanhope, who is unable to be here this evening, I can give the noble Lord the information in reply to his Question. A Report has been received from His Majesty's Consul-General in Shanghai regarding the demonstrations there in December, 1935, and copies of this Report have been placed in the Printed Paper Office. As the noble Lord will there see from this Report, the police acted with considerable restraint against the students, in accordance with the orders previously issued to meet such an eventuality.


I am very much obliged to the noble Earl for that information.
