The Great Britain-China Centre works with the Communist Party’s international wing, the body said.

Labour’s Lord Mandelson is listed as honorary president.

Ex-Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith said: “We should cut the money. China is hell-bent on global domination.”

Sam Armstrong, of the Henry Jackson Society, think-tank, added it was “plain dangerous” to subsidise opportunities for the Communist Party.

But the Foreign Office said last night: “The Great Britain-China Centre enables the UK to . . .  hold China to account.”
