HC Deb 06 May 1936 vol 311 c1709W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the ruling of the Chinese Minister of Industry that, in future, only the Chinese text of insurance policies is valid; whether he is aware that most insurance companies prefer the use of English in their documents; and whether he will represent to the Chinese Government that the new regulation is unnecessary and burdensome?


I have as yet received no information regarding the ruling referred to by my hon. Friend, but the question of Chinese insurance legislation is kept under constant review by His Majesty's Embassy at Peking, and I am calling for a report on the points which he raises.
