asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will now say what evidence has reached him through the Security Council to the effect that Chinese Communist troops have crossed the frontier to take part in the fighting in Korea; and if he will now make a statement on this evidence.


asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations he has made to the Peking Government, through the British Chargé d'Affaires, regarding the invasion of Korea by Chinese troops; and whether he will make a statement.

Hon. Members will have seen the Special Report of the Unified Command which was transmitted to the Secretary-General of the United Nations on 6th November. Since that date the Security Council have invited Peking to send representatives to state their case, and on 10th November a resolution was introduced in the Security Council by the United Kingdom, United States, France, Norway, Cuba and Ecuador. As the whole question is before the United Nations, which is the appropriate place for its consideration, I do not propose to make any statement. For the same reason, no representations have been made to the Central People's Government through His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires at Peking. Nor is it at present contemplated making any such representations.
