HC Deb 23 June 1937 vol 325 cc1219-20W
Mr. Mander

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress is being made with the building of the new British Embassy at Nanking; and when it is anticipated that the Ambassador will take up his residence at the Chinese capital?

Mr. Eden

Negotiations are still proceeding with the Chinese Government with a view to the acquisition of the proposed site for the new Embassy. In the meantime the previous Consul-General's residence at Nanking has been specially adapted as a residence for the Ambassador, who spends a considerable part of the year there.
