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.
§ * MR. BRODRICK
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.
