§ 4. Mr. G. LAMBERT
asked the President of the Board of Trade when a recognition of the silent heroism of sailors who have been torpedoed more than once, and who are still braving the submarine danger, will take place?
§ Mr. WARDLE
The services rendered by the officers and men of the mercantile marine, are, I think, fully recognised both by Parliament and by the country, but the precise form which that recognition should take must depend on what is done in the cases of the Army and Navy. There will be no avoidable delay in reaching a decision.
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the same reply was given a fortnight ago; and cannot this matter be expedited?
