§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in cases like that of Al Submarine, the British Navy is entirely dependent on foreign or other salvage companies; whether it is adequately equipped with appliances for lifting sunken or stranded vessels; whether our naval officers are instructed in carrying out salvage operations; and whether there is a naval salvage corps, and who is at the head of it.
§ * THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. PRETYMAN,) Suffolk, Woodbridge
I think the hon. Member will find all the information asked for in my printed reply to the hon. Member for Chester on the 15th instant.†
