§ Sir J. HASLAM
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the United States of America and ourselves were both signatories to the Nine Power Treaty of 1922, he proposes to consult the Washington Government with the object of upholding our obligations as well as our rights under the treaty in question?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I presume that my bon. Friend refers in this connection to the present situation in North China. As I stated in reply to a supplementary question asked by the hon. Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Morgan Jones) on 19th June, His Majesty's Government and the Government of the United States of America are in close touch on this matter.
