§ 6. Mr. SAKLATVALA
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the opening of negotiations through British delegates, Messrs. Kemp and Halifax, with the Foreign Ministry of the Canton Government on the questions of anti-British trade boycott and the Hongkong-Canton strike, is to be followed by a formal recognition of the present de facto Government at Canton?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
I would ask the hon. Member to refer to my reply to the hon. Member for Penistone (Mr. Rennie Smith) on the 12th July.
§ Mr. SAKLATVALA
Does the right hon. Gentleman see that there is a difference between that question and this 1199 one? My question refers to the departure of the British delegates and their meeting with representatives of the Foreign Ministry at Canton, which took place on the 15th July, after the date on which the other question was put.
