HC Deb 31 October 1966 vol 735 cc12-3W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs in which cases of representations made to the Chinese authorities on behalf of British subjects misused in Communist China apologies or other satisfaction have been received; and what reply was made to Her Majesty's Government's protests against the desecration of British graves in Peking by Red Guards.

Mrs. White

The only recent case of maltreatment of a British subject in China was that of Sister Catherine Rogan, about which I replied to the hon. Gentleman on 18th October. The Chinese have not expressed any regret for the way in which Sister Rogan was treated. On the desecration of British graves in Peking, I have nothing to add to the Answer which my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary gave to the hon. Gentlemen the Members for Chigwell (Mr. Biggs-Davison) and Brighton, Pavilion (Sir W. Teeling) on 24th October.
