I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the clause of the Anglo-German Agreement which declares for the maintenance of the integrity of the Chinese Empire, His Majesty's Government propose to ask the German Government to take any action in reference to Russia's action in Manchuria.

What about Manchuria?
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can inform the House if the Anglo-German Agreement includes Manchuria within its scope.
I have nothing to add to the statement which I made on this subject in answer to the hon. Gentleman on Tuesday last.†
May I ask if the Government would regard as a breach of the Anglo-German Agreement the continued occupation of Manchuria by—
Order, order! That does not arise out of the question.
