HC Deb 25 June 1928 vol 219 c43W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, before the despatch of Japanese troops to Tsinanfu, consultation took place between any of the signatories of the Nine-Power Treaty signed at Washington on 6th February, 1922; and, if not, whether, in view of the situation which has arisen at Tsinanfu and the provisions of Article 1 of the Treaty, the question of the application of the stipulations contained in Article 7 of the Treaty has been considered by His Majesty's Government?


In accordance with Article VII of the Nine-Power Treaty, the Japanese Government communicated a full statement of their intentions to the contracting Powers principally concerned, for which I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) on 14th May. His Majesty's Government are satisfied with this explanation.
