§ Mr. J. M. MACDONALD
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what is the practice of the Admiralty with respect to the supply of copies of the Bible to sailors in His Majesty's Navy?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
A presentation copy of the Bible or Testament is supplied to all boys in the training service and in mechanical training establishments who desire it when kitted up for sea. No other personal issue is made; but I may say that a certain number of Bibles and Testaments are allowed as a part of the store establishment of His Majesty's ships.
