§ 7. Sir CLEMENT KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is now in a position to announce the decision of the Government with regard to setting apart a day for a march through London of a representative number of officers and men of the Royal Navy, including representatives of the Mercantile Marine, mine sweepers, patrol boats, the late Royal Naval Air Service, and of all other sections of naval officers and men who have served their country in the War, either ashore or afloat?
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that that is the same reply as that given to me a fortnight ago, and having regard to the immediate interest taken throughout the country in this matter will the right hon. Gentleman mention some day when he will be able to give a more definite reply?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I appreciate the interest which is taken in this matter. It is true that the First Lord gave an answer that the matter was still under consideration and that remains true. I will give my hon. Friend the earliest notification of the occasion upon which either the First Lord or myself can carry the matter further and when there is some further development.
