HC Deb 31 July 1906 vol 162 c695

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether their Lordships will consider the advisability of appointing a Committee to examine into and report upon the whole question of the procedure, powers, and sentences of naval courts martial.


A Committee has been appointed, and is now sitting, which has under review the whole procedure of naval courts martial. The powers and sentences of courts martial are clearly defined by the Naval Discipline Act, and the Admiralty see no reason for any reference to a Committee on these points.
