HC Deb 01 August 1904 vol 139 c268

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state his computation of Tibetan killed and wounded to the present date.

*THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. Brodrick,) Surrey, Guildford

Estimates of the losses inflicted on the Tibetans have only been received in respect of five actions, and for these the figures are 1,065 killed and wounded and 270 prisoners. In other engagements it has presumably been impossible to determine the enemy's losses.


Can the right hon. Gentleman specify the killed and wounded?


I am afraid I cannot, I can only give the figures as they reached us.
