§ 55. Commander Viscount CURZON
asked the Prime Minister whether any decision has yet been come to with regard to the disposal of the ex-German ships salved at Scapa Flow; and whether any fresh decision has been come to with regard to those ships which are capable of being raised?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
I have been asked to reply to this question. The answer to the first part is in the negative. The decision rests with the Supreme Council in Paris. In regard to the second part of the question, no fresh decision has been arrived at to salve any ex-German vessels at Scapa Flow other than those which have been already salved.
§ Viscount CURZON
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that British ships are now providing manning parties and that they are in a very uncomfortable position with the accommodation very narrow and no light?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The disposal of tie salved ships rests with the Supreme Council in Paris, and I will call the attention of the First Lord to the other point mentioned by the Noble Lord.
