HC Deb 23 March 1927 vol 204 c370
21. Sir B. FALLE

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will consider the introduction of a number of waterproof covers for hammocks for use when ratings are travelling, observing that at present there is no protection against rain or dirt on railway platforms and guards' vans, and that nammocks frequently become wet and dirty whilst ratings are proceeding from one ship to another?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

This matter is already receiving consideration.

Colonel DAY

Can the hon. And gallant Gentleman say what is the cost of the waterproof covers?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

I cannot give that information at the moment.
