HC Deb 06 May 1937 vol 323 cc1272-3W
Mr. Kelly

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in the case of Japanese proposals for better understanding in regard to British and Japanese trade on the mainland of China, His Majesty's Government will not approve any step which infringes the sovereign rights of China or which is regarded by the Nanking Government as so doing?

Viscount Cranborne

His Majesty's Government have no intention of departing from their consistent policy of respecting the sovereign rights of China.
