HC Deb 20 June 1934 vol 291 cc386-7W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Chinese Government has now regained full freedom of action in Chinese territory south of the Great Wall; and, if not, what are the causes of outside interference with the Chinese administration?


To the best of my information the answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative except that Chinese troops, in common with Japanese, are prohibited by the terms of the armistice agreement of 31st May, 1933, from entering the area known as the demilitarised zone.
