HC Deb 30 March 1927 vol 204 cc1226-7
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?


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.
