10. Mr. CATHCART WASON
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many officers of the merchant service are now on active service under the Admiralty, specifying, as far as he may deem advisable, the different spheres of duty in which they are engaged and the number in each?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I am afraid that I can only reply to my hon. Friend that I do not think it would be in the public interest to give the information asked for.
