§ The PRIME MINISTER
I regret that any unpleasantness should have arisen out of this attempt to see the Fleet. So far as His Majesty's Government are concerned, they would wish that every Member who cares might attend the review; but their benevolence is limited by the cost and by the problems of transport both by rail and ship. If the invitation were to be generally extended, a Supplementary Estimate would be necessary.
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Ammon)
200 and 400 tickets have been allotted for the use of Members of the House of Lords and the House of Commons respectively.
