§ 80. Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty what percentage of the men in the Portsmouth naval barracks and Eastney Royal Marine barracks were convicted of punishable offences between the dates 1st January to 30th June, 1913?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The conditions at the Royal naval barracks, Portsmouth, and at Eastney are so different in respect of the length of service, time in barracks, and other circumstances affecting the respective personnels, that any comparison based on figures would, I think, be entirely misleading.
