asked the Secretary of State for War how many U.S. troops are stationed in this country; in what areas; for how long it is proposed that they will remain; under what agreements they are here; what steps are being taken to arrange for their return home; how much land has been requisitioned or withheld from release for their accommodation; and what expenses fall upon this country in connection with their sojourn here.
No United States troops are stationed in this country apart from a small number of members of the United States Army engaged on courses, liaison duties and the repatriation of United States dead. The rest of the Question does not, therefore, arise.
All that I can deal with is the Question on the Paper, which refers' to United States troops and not to the Air Force. Therefore, my answer to my hon. and learned Friend is that there are none.
