§ MR. JENKINS (Chatham)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the First Lord of the Admiralty has received a memorial praying that Lundy Island should be purchased, with a view to converting it into a harbour of refuge and a naval base for the protection of the Bristol Channel; and what action he proposes taking in connection therewith.
(Answered by Mr. Edmund Robertson.) Such a letter has been received from a Welsh Chamber of Commerce and will be duly considered by the Department. As at present advised, however, the Admiralty have no intention of purchasing Lundy Island.
