§ Mr. HUNT
asked in view of the official estimate that we have an expeditionary Army which is about three times as large as any expeditionary Army for oversea service of any other Power in the world, what was the number of Spanish troops employed in dealing with the insurrection in Cuba in 1895–6; what was the number of troops placed in Manchuria by Japan in 1904–5; and what was the number of troops sent by Italy to Tripoli?
§ Mr. GULLAND
The number of Spanish troops sent to Cuba from Spain was 188,724; the number of Japanese troops sent to Manchuria was 1,014,887; the number of Italian troops sent to Tripoli is not available. These figures do not appear to have any bearing on the statement quoted by the hon. Gentleman.
