26. Lieut.-Commander AGNEW

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can state the number of professional man-of-war men now employed in the United States of America coastguard and revenue service; and if such number is included in the 107,000 which is the approximate total of the naval personnel of the United States of America?


The number of officers and men in the United States Coastguard Service, as given in the return furnished by the United States of America to the League of Nations on the 6th June, 1931, was 11,866. These were not included in the return of naval forces furnished by the United States of America. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
