18. Mr. TAYLOR

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can define the relations of General Duncan to the contingents of foreign Powers at Shanghai; and whether these foreign Powers have placed any authority in his hands?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Sir Laming Worthington - Evans)

Although the contingents of the other Powers at Shanghai are working in the closest co-operation with General Duncan, no reports have been received of their having been placed under his orders.
