§ Sir R. HAMILTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is prepared to take such steps as may be necessary to secure an impartial judicial inquiry into the recent disturbances in Shanghai, whether under the auspices of the League of Nations or otherwise?
§ Mr. McNEILL
My right hon. Friend asks that the House will permit him to defer any further statement on Chinese affairs until the communications now passing between the interested Powers have reached a point at which he can make his full statement with due regard to the public interest and to international comity.
