§ 48. Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Prime Minister whether he will give a day for the discussion of the Report on the Dardanelles Expedition; whether the great bulk of the evidence is of a nature that can be published without giving any information of value to the enemy; and, if so, whether he will cause the bulk of the evidence to be published?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I cannot give an answer to the first part of the question until the Report has been circulated and I know whether there is any general desire for its discussion. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
§ 61. Commander BELLAIRS
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will supplement the Report of the Dardanelles Committee by publishing dispatches and correspondence dealing with the escape of the "Goeben," in view of the fact that the event took place over thirty months ago and brought Turkey into the War; and whether he can follow the practice frequently adopted in this House in past wars of laying the proceedings of the court-martial on Admiral Troubridge upon the Table?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
The Admiralty view remains the same as that expressed in the reply I gave my hon. and gallant Friend on the 31st July last.
