§ 16. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
asked the Secretary of State for War how many British troops are still serving in Korea; and on what duties they are engaged.
§ Mr. John Hare
One battalion, which is manning a sector of the United Nations armistice line, and some administrative units.
§ Lieut-Colonel Lipton
Cannot something be done for these almost forgotten men? Why could the Government not perhaps enter into some discussions with our American allies so that they might take over such small responsibilities as still exist under the United Nations in 1028 Korea? I do not think that they would object very much, would they?
