66. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the decision to lay Papers with regard to the Mesopotamia Expedition, he can now see his way to lay Papers with regard to the Antwerp Expedition and the loss of the three "Cressys"?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I doubt if the two cases are analogous, but I will again consult the Departments concerned.
Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
Is it within the recollection of my right hon. Friend that when the publication of these Papers was asked for last November, the First Lord of the Admiralty said that he had no objection to the publication of them himself, but that if Papers with regard to one episode were published Papers with 659 regard to other episodes might be demanded, and seeing that Papers with regard to the Mesopotamia episode have now been published, is there not now a reason for publishing Papers as to other episodes also?
§ Commander BELLAIRS
Were not Papers laid by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Dundee on the private table of an old Friend, the Attorney-General?
