HC Deb 01 July 1913 vol 54 c1665
71. Mr. MUNRO

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has decided, in view of impending developments at Cromarty, to establish a naval canteen there; and, if 30, whether he will state the conditions under which it is proposed to conduct the canteen, and the object to which its profits will be applied?


It is the intention to establish a canteen at Cromarty for the benefit of men of the Home Fleets visiting Cromarty Firth, generally on the lines of that established at Lamlash. With regard to the points referred to by my hon Friend in the latter part of the question, the whole matter is still in the early stages of consideration, and it would be premature at present to make any definite statement.


Will the Admiralty use their influence to extend to the people of Scotland the scheme of disinterested management which apparently they wish for the sailors?


That is outside the province of the Admiralty.
