HC Deb 23 June 1926 vol 197 cc352-3
11. Lieut.- Commander KENWORTHY

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will state the last occasion when a British man-of-war visited Ideland; and when he anticipates the next occasion will be?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Bridgeman)

His Majesty's Ship "Kennet" was in Icelandic waters from the 18th May until the 7th June and His Majesty's Ship "Godetia" arrived at Reykjavik on 16th June and will remain in Icelandic waters until 1st July.

Lieut.- Commander KENWORTHY

Does the reply of the right hon. Gentleman mean that frequent visits will be paid by His Majesty's vessels to these important fishing waters?


I do not think there are to be any more this year.


Does the visit of these two vessels to Iceland explain the cold weather we are having now?
