HC Deb 16 March 1927 vol 203 cc2028-9W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is in direct communication with the Shanghai Municipal Council, through the chairman or the secretary of that body, in regard to the situation in the international settlement in Shanghai; and, if not, who is the channel of communication between His Majesty's Government and the council?


His Majesty's Consul-General at Shanghai is always in close touch with the municipal authorities of the international settlement, and any communication which His Majesty's Government might wish to make to them would be transmitted through that officer.
