§ MR. GROVES (Salford, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty 596 if he can state whether the usual leave will be granted to the officers and men who have taken part in the recent Naval Manœuvres, including those engaged in the regular Channel Squadron, as has been the custom in former years on the conclusion of the said manœuvres.
§ MR. ARNOLD-FORSTER
Leave for ships commissioned for manœuvres will be granted as usual. Leave to ships not specially commissioned is entirely dependent on the exigencies of the Service.
