HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 cc2390-1W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has now received any information tending to show that China has presented a note to Japan on the subject of the abrogation of the 1915 Treaty between the two countries; whether Japan has accepted it; and whether the good offices of the seven Powers in the nine-Power group will be available, if requested, to adjust the conflicting points of view?


Since replying to the hon. Member's question on 12th March, have learned that such a note has been presented, and that the Japanese Government have declined to entertain the proposals of the Chinese Government. The question of outside intervention does not arise.
