HC Deb 01 March 1926 vol 192 c1044W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the closure of the ports of Canton and Whampoa and with a view to avoiding any misunderstandings, he will now publish the conditions put forward by the Government of Canton with a view to bringing the anti-British boycott to an end?


I think the question is based on some misapprehension. So far as I am aware, no demands have been put forward officially by the Canton Government. It would not be desirable to give any detailed particulars on the subject of the negotiations which recently took place, but I will send to the hon. Member a copy of the statement issued by the Hong Kong Government.
