HC Deb 16 March 1927 vol 203 c2027W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the strength of the total British forces at the disposal of General Duncan in Shanghai; and whether it is proposed to augment or deplete this strength?

Captain KING

I have been asked to reply. General Duncan has under his command at Shanghai eight infantry battalions, together with the necessary ancillary troops. I cannot forecast what changes it may be found necessary to make in the composition of this force.
