§ 31. Viscount CURZON
asked the Prime Minister whether, on the return of the special service squadron from their world cruise, a march of the officers and men through London can take place on the same lines as those which have taken place through the great cities of the Dominions, in order to give the people of London the best possible opportunity of seeing the men and welcoming them on their return?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Ammon)
I have been asked to reply. It is not proposed to adopt the suggestion.
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
How is it that London is to be the only capital city in the Empire that is not to have this march?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Will the Board of Admiralty consider how very acceptable this would be to the people of London, who have not the opportunity of seeing the sailors that we have?
§ Earl WINTERTON
If it should prove that there is a general desire on all sides of the House and in the country generally for this march, would the hon. Gentleman reconsider his decision?
