§ Mr. R. YOUNG
asked the Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether a company of British officers are proceeding to Japan for the purpose of developing a Japanese militant air service in the Far East; and whether these officers are going with the consent, approval, and authorisation of the British Government?
As to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on the 23rd ultimo to the hon. Member for Edinburgh East (Mr. Hogge). To the second part of the question, I would add that as this undertaking has no official aspect, so far as this country is concerned, the question of the consent, approval, or authorisation of His Majesty's Government does not arise.
