HC Deb 06 April 1939 vol 345 c3033W
Sir J. Haslam

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that a British-owned newspaper in Shanghai published on 1st March the names and addresses of 34 opium-dens in the Shanghai district outside the jurisdiction of the Shanghai Municipal Council which have been licensed by the Japanese authorities for 500 dollars each per month; and whether he will make strong representations to the Japanese Government on the necessity for immediately suppressing opium traffic in the area under their control?

Mr. Butler

My Noble Friend is making inquiries about this report.
