§ 5. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, whether he will consider the possibility of giving leave to those men serving in the Navy, more particularly pensioners, who have been since the beginning, and in some cases previous to the commencement, of the War engaged on foreign service?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
I fear I can add nothing to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend on the 23rd November. I take this opportunity, however, of correcting a mistake which I made in replying to his supplementary question of Tuesday last. I said I had received from him no particulars of the cases which I invited him to bring to my notice in my reply to his question of the 23rd November. That was incor- 1808 rect. My hon. Friend had sent me some particulars on the 29th November. I apologise.
