HC Deb 18 May 1939 vol 347 c1645W
Sir J. Wardlaw-Milne

asked the Prime Minister whether he can give the House any information of the sale of munitions to China by Germany and Italy and the extent to which such transactions have taken place?

Mr. Butler

The arms and munitions imported by the Chinese Government have not all passed through British territory, but of those which have, war material of German origin has exceeded in quantity that from any other country, since the opening of hostilities.
