HC Deb 19 July 1935 vol 304 c1386W

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether, with a view to finding out the possibilities of greater trade co-operation between this country and Southern China, he will give sympathetic consideration to the possibility of an industrial commission visiting that area under the auspices of his department?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

In view of the imminent departure of Sir Frederick Leith Ross for China it is advisable to await his report before considering the question of sending an industrial mission to Canton.
