§ 63. Mr. Mander
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has yet received a reply from the Japanese Government concerning the suggestion made by His Majesty's Ambassador at Tokyo that the importation of oil for the transport of medical supplies in China should he made available to the Chinese Red Cross?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Butler)
The Japanese Government have asked for certain further details before giving a definite reply, and it is hoped to communicate these details to them shortly.
§ Mr. Mander
In view of the very reasonable nature of this request, will my right hon. Friend take every possible step to press for an early answer?
