§ Sir J. POWER
asked the Secretary of State for War the present strength of the British defence force in China, and how this compares with the maximum strength of that force?
§ Mr. COOPER
There will be four additional battalions in China at the end of this trooping season besides the three battalions normally stationed there, compared with the maximum number of 18 additional battalions (including one of Marines) which were there in July, 1927.
