HC Deb 24 February 1927 vol 202 c1942W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Shanghai Municipal Council has under its own control any other armed force except the Indian police force?


The only armed force under the control of the Shanghai Municipal Council is the volunteer corps which is international in composition. The police force, which is mainly Chinese but also includes Europeans, Japanese and Indians, do not carry arms, unless engaged on some special duty which renders such a precaution necessary.
