§ MR. JOHN BURNS (Battersea)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he could expedite the repairs to H.M.S. "Buzzard," so as to save members of the Naval Volunteer Reserve the time and trouble of going to the docks to drill.
(Answered by Mr. Pretyman.) Instructions have already been given for the completion of the refit of H.M.S. "Buzzard" by an early date, and I am afraid that no further action is possible in this direction without disorganising other very important work in progress in the dockyard.
