HC Deb 23 March 1938 vol 333 c1212W
Mr. Hannah

asked the Prime Minister what reply he has received to the protest of His Majesty's Government at the refusal of Japanese censors in Chefoo to accept code messages for transmission by cable from British firms?

Mr. Butler

The Japanese Embassy in Peking, through whom the protest to the Peking Provisional Government was made, replied that the military authorities found it necessary to impose a ban on code telegrams, but would lift the ban as soon as order was restored.
