§ Mr. DUCKWORTH
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if His Majesty's Government have any understanding with any other Government as to joint action in China; and, if so, whether he will use his best offices to ensure at the earliest possible date a mutual settlement on a friendly basis with the Nationalist Government of China of all outstanding urgent questions?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
As regards the first part of his question, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for Penistone (Mr. Rennie Smith) on 28th November. I am always anxious to do all in my power to promote a friendly settlement of outstanding questions, and shall certainly continue my efforts in this direction whenever an opportunity presents itself.
