Alert me about debates like this
asked the Prime Minister whether the offer of the Chinese Government to send troops to Burma to fight side by side with Allied troops, has been accepted?
Yes, Sir. The offer has been gratefully accepted. Chinese troops have already moved into Burma, and it is reported that some of them have been in action.
Arising out of that reply, is my right hon. Friend aware that last week widespread statements were made that the offer by the Chinese to send troops had been refused by His Majesty's Government?
If that is so, those statements were incorrect. I cannot be held responsible for what is put in the Press.
I take it that you are giving the Chinese all the war material they require?
