5. Miss Ward
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the decision of the Japanese authorities to allow food parcels now at Vladivostock to be forwarded to British prisoners of war is to develop into a regular service.
§ Mr. Law
The Japanese Government have undertaken to send a ship to lift the relief supplies which were despatched to Vladivostok over a year ago. They have, however, refused to agree to receive further deliveries at the port designated by the Soviet Government, and while an overland rail route via Manchuria has been suggested as an alternative, a regular service is not yet in sight.
Can my right hon. Friend say whether negotiations are being carried on still with the Japanese Government?
§ Mr. Godfrey Nicholson
Can my right hon. Friend give the House any information showing to which camps or areas these parcels or comforts will be despatched?
