HC Deb 18 June 1941 vol 372 c670W
Captain J. Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the statement made by the Prime Minister, on 18th July, 1940, it is correct to assume that His Majesty's Government will, by unilateral action, and without getting anything in return other than the good-will of the Chinese people, abolish extra-territoriality, and give all remaining British concessions back to the Chinese Government on the conclusion of hostilities on Chinese soil?

Mr. Eden

The relinquishment by His Majesty's Government of their special rights in China would naturally form the subject of negotiation with the Chinese Government, as I indicated in the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the member for Romford (Mr. Parker) on nth June.
