HC Deb 15 November 1920 vol 134 cc1511-2
35. Viscount CURZON

asked the Prime Minister whether the despatches in full relating to the escape of the "Goeben," the Scarborough raid, and the battle of the Dogger Bank have been as yet published; and, if not, will he give an assurance that they will be published in due course, with any relevant information of an authentic character which may come to light from German sources?


I have been asked to reply to this question. So far as the near future is concerned, it is not proposed that documents in regard to these incidents shall be published. The first of them has already been, and the other two will very soon be, dealt with in the Naval History of the War.

Viscount CURZON

I did not quite hear what the hon. and gallant Gentleman said, but am I right in assuming that in due course, on some day in the future, the full despatches relating to these will be published?


I would not look so far into the future. It is not intended to publish them at the present moment.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

Are details of these available for use at the Staff College, Greenwich?


Perhaps the hon. and gallant Gentleman will put down a question.
