§ MR. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of recent events, any request has been put forward by the Colonial Office to the Admiralty for the provision of more vessels for service in West Indian waters.
§ MR. CHURCHILL
In view of recent events the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty have decided to detail a cruiser in addition to H.M.S. "Indefatigable" for temporary service in West Indian waters. The general question has been receiving, and will continue to receive, the careful attention of His Majesty's Government.
