§ 85. Mr. MORGAN JONES
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the Report of the inquiry into the cost of education at the Cadet College at Dartmouth has been received; and, if so, whether it will be available for perusal by Members of this House?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Amery)
The inquiry referred to was made by a Departmental Committee for the information of the Board of Admiralty, and in accordance with the usual practice in such matters, it is not proposed to publish the Committee's Report. I may add, however, that the Committee's recommendations were before the Board when the Estimates for the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth for the present financial year were considered, and these Estimates show a reduction of over £44,000 as compared with those for 1921–22, though part of this is due to the fall in prices generally, and to a reduction in the number of naval cadets.
