§ 18. Mr. LOOKER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the danger of a similar situation arising at Tientsin to that which exists in Hankow, he will state what precautions are contemplated for the protection of the British community there?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
The question of what, if any, special precautions it may be necessary to adopt at Tientsin is under consideration. There are, I understand, United States, French, Japanese, Italian and British forces already there amounting to a total of 4,740 officers and men.
