§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Arthur Henderson)
I have received no full report of the recent outbreak at Wuhu, and can add little to the information given in reply to my hon. Friend's question of 4th November. His Majesty's ship "Cricket" was stationed at Wuhu at the time; it was open to all British nationals to take refuge on board her while the danger lasted and a number did so. Two other British warships were also sent to Wuhu for the protection of British lives and property.
