§ 15. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Secretary of State for War what is the approximate number of British troops at present on the Rhine and in Silesia, respectively?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
The British troops on the Rhine number approximately 4,700 and those in Silesia 4,800.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Does the right hon. Gentleman know whether the majority of the troops in Silesia have been drawn from the Rhine?
§ Sir D. MACLEAN
In view of the fact that the cost of these troops is not being met, will the right hon. Gentleman take such steps as he can to expedite their further withdrawal?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON - EVANS
There is nothing I should like better than that the troops should come from Silesia and the Rhine, and as soon as their duty is done in Silesia they will be withdrawn.
