§ 12. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty were satisfied with the test of the German deep-sea diving apparatus used in attempting to salve His Majesty's submarine M1; and whether an apparatus is to be acquired for the use of the British Navy if required in the future?
§ The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Bridgeman)
The trials to which I referred to in my answer—(OFFICIAL REPORT, 3rd March, col. 1405) to the hon. Member for Devonport (Mr. Hore-Belisha)— have not yet taken place, but are expected to be made shortly. Until the trials have been held, I am not in a position to reply.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Will the right hon. Gentleman inform me when he is in a position to make a statement?
