§ 22. Rear-Admiral BEAMISH
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the decision that the Report on the battle of Jutland, commonly known as the Harper Report, is not to be published can, in view of the uncertainties in the public mind, be reversed?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
Owing to misconceptions which appear to exist as to the scope and nature of the work to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers, it has been decided to issue what was known as the Official Record of the Battle of Jutland. This record was compiled by Rear-Admiral (then Captain) Harper and four other officers.
§ Rear-Admiral BEAMISH
Will the narrative by Rear-Admiral Harper be in the same terms as those originally laid before the Board of Admiralty?
