§ MR. BELLAIRS (Lynn Regis)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, why there has been omitted from the Navy Estimates for the new financial year Appendix No. 8, which has appeared for many years past, showing the cost of the different classes of vessels added in each year to the Navy and the estimated annual rate of depreciation; and whether he can state why the tables showing the number of men in nucleus crews have also been omitted.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. EDMUND ROBERTSON,) Dundee
The Appendix has not been omitted, but it is now called Appendix No. 7. The nucleus crews are included in the column headed "Active Service" in accordance with the arrangements made for the current year, and after the consideration which I promised the hon. Gentleman on 17th April last.
§ MR. BELLAIRS
Will the right hon. Gentleman obtain information as to the number of men in the nucleus crews if I put a Question on the Paper?
