§ Colonel DAY
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any change has taken place since 13th April, 1927, with reference to the complement of the Navy stationed in Chinese waters?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
The total number of naval personnel now stationed on the China station is, approximately, 13,500. This change is due to, the departure of H.M.S. "Enterprise" for the East Indies Station, conveying a number of ratings recently relieved from the China gunboats, to Colombo.
