HC Deb 19 July 1900 vol 86 c455
MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can state what is the number of Japanese troops now landed or about to land in China.


According to our latest information about 14,000 men had either landed or were en route on 17th July. It is expected that 2,000 more will embark by Sunday next.
