HC Deb 19 December 1935 vol 307 c1915
The VICE-CHAMBERLAIN of the HOUSEHOLD (Major G. Davies) reported His Majesty's Answer to the Address, as followeth

I have received your Address praying that I will give directions that a Monument be erected at the public charge to the memory of the late Admiral of the Fleet Earl Jellicoe, as an expression of the admiration of the House of Commons for his illustrious naval career, and its gratitude for his devoted services to the State, and assuring Me that you will make good the expenses attending the same.

It is right that the Nation should honour in this way the memory of a great Admiral, whose whole life was inspired by the highest ideals of public service, and I will gladly give directions for effect to be given to your proposal.
