HC Deb 07 November 1934 vol 293 c1014
17. Commander MARSDEN

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what part His Majesty's Navy will take in the Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1935?


As part of the Silver Jubilee celebrations, His Majesty the King hopes to review the Fleet at Spithead on Tuesday, 16th July, 1935, or, should the weather on that day be unsuitable, on Wednesday, 17th July, 1935. The ships which are to take part in the review have not yet been finally selected, but in addition to the Home and part of the Reserve Fleets, certain units of the Mediterranean Fleet will probably be present. His Majesty, in the Victoria and Albert, will lead the Fleet to sea for exercises on the forenoon of the day following the review.

Commander MARSDEN

Will special arrangements be made for providing accommodation for Members of this House who wish to visit the Fleet?


I think that my hon. and gallant Friend had better apply through the usual channels.
