HC Deb 05 May 1926 vol 195 c269
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?


I will; but perhaps the hon. and gallant Member will remind me in a short time.
