3. Sir C. YATE

asked the Secretary of State for India what is the military expenditure of Japan for the present year, and how that expenditure compares with the proposed expenditure in India of 62 crores of rupees; and what is the cost for the defence of India and Japan, respectively, per head of population, comparing the 77,000,000 of Japan with the 315,000,000 inhabitants of India?


My hon. and gallant Friend should address the Foreign Office for information as regards Japan.

Commander BELLAIRS

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the population of Japan is in my hon. Friend's question exaggerated by 20,000,000?


I think that observation should be addressed to the Foreign Office.
