HC Deb 20 June 1927 vol 207 cc1480-1
40. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty why the diagrams prepared by the Harper Committee have not been reproduced with Cmd. 2870, Record of the Battle of Jutland; and whether they will be made available for Members?


As stated in the explanatory note at the beginning of the Blue Book, the expense of reproducing the diagrams is prohibitive, but copies can be seen at the Admiralty, by anyone interested, on application to the Secretary of the Admiralty. This applies both to Members of Parliament and to the general public.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Have copies not been reproduced for the use of the staff and for the staff colleges and naval colleges; and would additional expense be involved in having some copies placed in the Library?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

To my knowledge no such copies have been reproduced, and I can only refer my hon. and gallant Friend to what I have already said. The expense is prohibitive, but if he wants to see the diagrams he can do so by calling at the Admiralty.
