HC Deb 07 May 1908 vol 188 c409
MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Siebe-Gorman life-saving device has been ordered as part of the equipment for all new submarine boats of the C class; whether only one of the earlier type of submarines has so far been supplied with this apparatus; and whether the remainder of the older submarine boats, over forty in number and with crews aggregating some 500 men, will also be furnished with this, or some equally efficient, life-saving device at the earliest possible opportunity.


The hon. Member may rely upon the best life-saving device available being supplied at the first opportunity to all submarines in His Majesty's Navy.
