asked the Secretary of State for War how many British troops are at present stationed in Shanghai; and what has been the cost of the occupation up to the most recent date available?
§ Mr. PENNY
As regards the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply on the 13th instant to the hon. Member for Stourbridge (Mr. Wellock). As regards the second part, the extra cost involved in the employment of additional troops in China up to the end of November, 1928, is estimated at approximately£4,250,000,
