HC Deb 03 July 1902 vol 110 cc689-90
MR. W. F. LAWRENCE (Liverpool, Abercrombie)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the Committee appointed to inquire into the Naval Reserve and Naval Volunteers has made its Report; and, if so, whether the Report will be presented to this House; and whether the Government has decided on any, and, if so, what policy with regard to forming corps of Naval Volunteers.


The Committee has not yet presented its Report, and therefore it would be premature at the present stage to make any statement with regard to its presentation to the House, or with respect to any action which may be taken in pursuance of the recommendations which the Committee may submit.

SIR JOHN COLOMB (Great Yarmouth)

Has the taking of evidence been concluded?


I am not sure, but I will inquire.
