§ Mr. MARDY JONES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India what is the number of Indian troops now serving with the British Expeditionary Force at Shanghai; and how long it is proposed to keep them in China?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
have been asked to reply. There are two Indian battalions and ancillary troops serving with the Shanghai Defence Force. I am not in a position to say how long they will be retained there.
