HC Deb 08 August 1911 vol 29 c951

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty have perfected the organisation of their scheme for conveying information to merchant vessels at sea on the outbreak of war; and whether they are satisfied that orders of the Admiralty conveyed through the admirals by His Majesty's ships to our merchant ships would be understood?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. McKenna)

I am unable to make any statement upon the matters referred to in the question.


Has the right hon. Gentleman's attention been directed to this matter?


Yes, but I think the hon. Gentleman will agree with me that it would be undesirable to go into particulars.
