HC Deb 04 June 1930 vol 239 cc2134-5
18. Mr. T. LEWIS

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the total time spent by a Dartmouth entry cadet and a special entry cadet, respectively, in the training college or ship, at sea, in shore courses for lieutenant, and also a mate in his qualifying courses for lieutenant?


As the reply is in tabular form, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFCIAL REPORT.

Following is the reply:

any cruisers have been ordered from the Mediterranean to India; if so, to what destination in India these cruisers are proceeding; and the total number of warships and aircraft carriers now stationed in Indian waters?


The answer to the first and second parts of the question is in the negative, and the third part, therefore, does not arise. Vessels of the Royal Navy at present employed on the East Indies Station are:

Cruisers. Sloops. Special Service Vessel.
"Effingham." "Cyclamen." "Triad."
"Emerald." "Lupin."
