§ 23. Mr. MANDER
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he will state the cost during the past year of the garrison kept to guard the legation at Peiping, and also at Tientsin in connection therewith?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Duff Cooper)
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on 31st May, to my hon. Friend the Member for West Newcastle-upon-Tyne (Dr. Leech).
§ Mr. MANDER
Could not that money be saved if the British Legation were moved to the headquarters of the Chinese Government at Nanking, or to Shanghai, 600 miles nearer?
