HC Deb 10 May 1965 vol 712 cc8-9W
53. Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps have been taken by Her Majesty's Government to seek an exchange of ambassadors between the United Kingdom and the People's Republic of China.

Mr. Padley

When my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade was in Peking in November, 1964, he told the Chinese that we wanted this exchange to be made, but the Chinese are still opposed.
