§ MR. SUMMERBELL
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty what rearrangement of the mechanician establishment on H.M.S. "Indus" has taken place since 1st January, 1908; what circumstances entailed the alteration; and will it facilitate means for obtaining the cost of training.
§ MR. McKENNA
No rearrangement has taken place since the 1st January, 1908. The change to which the Hon. Member probably refers had to do with the workshops in "Indus I.", which ship, though forming part of the "Indus" establishment, is in no way connected with the mechanician part of it.
