asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received any report from His Majesty's Minister in China on the steps being taken to secure co-operation between the British and Chinese authorities for the suppression of pirates in the Bias Bay and Mirs Bay areas in Kuantung?
§ Sir J. SIMON
As stated in the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal on 7th February to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Camborne (Lieut.-Commander Agnew), co-operation in anti-piracy measures already exists. I have received reports of consultations between the British naval and Chinese naval and military authorities, but the details are necessarily confidential.
