HC Deb 22 November 1911 vol 31 cc1343-4W
Baron de FOREST

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information as to the intention of the United States Government to send a regiment of troops to Ching-Wan-tao for the purpose of keeping open the line of communication from Pekin to Tientsin?


I understand that the United States Government are considering the question of sending troops from Manila to guard the railway to Shanhaikuan, if necessary, in co-operation with the British and other foreign troops on the spot.
