§ MR. HUNT
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty what are the existing complements and crews of the eleven battleships and ten cruisers, respectively, now laid up with skeleton crews; and what additional number of men are required in each case to make the ships ready for immediate war, and whore are these additional men now located.
§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON
The existing complements vary from one-eighth to one-tenth of full numbers. According to the established practice of the Navy, details of complements and arrangements for mobilisation are not published.
§ MR. LEVERTON HARRIS (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)
