HC Deb 19 December 1927 vol 212 c34W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many British citizens have been killed or wounded by mob or military violence, since the troubles at Nanking, in any part of China?


As far as my information goes, one British subject has been killed by soldiers in China since the date of the Nanking outrage, and at least three by brigands or pirates. There have also been various cases of wounding of British subjects by mob or military violence, but in the absence of full information I cannot give the number.
