HC Deb 22 November 1962 vol 667 cc153-4W
Q15. Sir W. Teeling

asked the Prime Minister, in view of China's invasion of India and Her Majesty's Government's promise to give India all possible material aid, what is now Her Majesty's Government's policy concerning United Kingdom trade with China, especially in materials likely to be of use in war time; and whether he will now close the United Kingdom Embassy in Peking.

The Prime Minister

It remains the policy of Her Majesty's Government to encourage the normal development of trade with China. Exports of arms, ammunition and other goods of strategic significance are subject to the embargo which we apply in concert with our allies. There is no reason why Her Majesty's Government should close the United Kingdom Mission in Peking.
