asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the United Kingdom Commercial Corporation will extend its activities to assist in the post-war development of China or whether it is proposed to take any steps to collaborate in this respect with the Government of China which is anxious for foreign economic assistance?
It is not yet possible to say whether there will be any part for the United Kingdom Commercial Corporation to play in the post-war development of China, on which subject I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Stourbridge (Mr. R. Morgan) on 23rd November by my right hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
