§ 8. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware of the complaints made by the crews of certain of His Majesty's ships in the Baltic owing to the lack of fresh provisions and of canteen. supplies; and whether any steps have been taken to improve matters?
§ The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Long)
The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative.
§ 13. Major HURST
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that many seamen now serving in the Baltic are ill-informed as to the objects of their service; whether he will consider the expediency of having the men enlightened as to the vital national interests involved; and whether he can hold out any hope of rewarding their service by the grant of an extra bar to the War medal or of a gratuity?
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
May the House be informed what are the vital national interests involved in this matter, seeing that although the seamen of the Baltic fleet have been given full information the House has been told nothing?
