§ 48. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what action has been taken to carry out the recommendation of the Geddes Committee of 14th December, 1921, that the Admiralty yacht "Enchantress" should be disposed of; and what has been the total cost to the public funds of this ship since that date?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Ammon)
The answer to the first part of the question was given in my reply to the hon. Member for Mid-Bedford on the 4th June. The total gross amount spent on the ship since she was paid off on the 31st March, 1922, is £817, the bulk of which was incurred in the work of de-storing her and making her ready for laying up.
