HC Deb 27 June 1918 vol 107 c1227
51. Colonel C. LOWTHER

asked the Prime Minister whether he has any reason for refusing to inform the Members of this House the number of Americans at present in France or at the various seats of war; and whether he will say how many more American troops can reasonably be expected upon the Western Front before the end of 1918?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and to the second part in the negative.


Is it not the fact that the German Press have and are continually denouncing the Americans, and is not the secrecy of His Majesty's Ministers calculated to support their fabrications?


I think the Germans will have found out by other means than the Press that the Americans are in France.
