Why is it not in the public interest to say whether the Chinese Generalissimo offered to help or not? Is my right hon. Friend aware that there was a report in the "Daily Herald" on 12th January that it was being widely advertised in the Chinese papers that such an offer had been made and had been refused?
I am not prepared to accept those statements without further examination; and, as I have already said, my right hon. Friend is not able to add at this moment to what he has said.
