§ Sir M. Sueter
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether anything is being done to arrange for further repatriation of British nationals in occupied China; and is he considering trying to exchange these civilians, with women and children, for any Japanese nationals that may be in different parts of the Empire?
§ Mr. Law
The Swiss Government, as Protecting Power, have intimated to the Japanese Government the desire of His Majesty's Government to arrange further exchanges of British nationals in Japan and Japanese-occupied territories, including occupied China, against Japanese held in the British Empire. As my hon. and gallant Friend will have seen from the reply given to a Question by the hon. Member for Hornsey (Captain Gammans) on 17th February, the Japanese Government have not yet replied to the Swiss Government's inquiries
