HC Deb 31 January 1934 vol 285 cc367-8

May I be allowed to make a personal explanation in connection with my supplementary on Question No. 8. My supplementary was intended, as I hope the House will see, to be directed to the difficulty of navigating any battleship of the displacement of His Majesty's Ship "Nelson" in narrow waters, but in so far as any reflection seemed to be cast upon the skill and care of the captain, I apologise to the House and readily withdraw it, as no such reflection was in my mind, or intended.
