HC Deb 04 August 1926 vol 198 c3005W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the decision reached by His Majesty's Government on the suggested arbitration on the differences between Hong Kong and the Canton Government, and the nature of the recommendation thereon made by the British representatives to the recent conference?


As the hon Member for Willesden West (Mr. Viant) was informed yesterday, the question of the appointment of a Commission to inquire into the responsibility for the shooting at Shameen on the 23rd of June, 1925, is at present under consideration. There has been no suggestion of arbitration on differences between Hong Kong and the Canton Government.
