HC Deb 26 July 1916 vol 84 c1698W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that there are survivors from the battleship "Irresistible" still serving in the Mediterranean; and, in view of the fact that the ship was lost sixteen months ago, whether the exigencies of the Service will permit these men to visit their families at an early date?


I am afraid that I cannot add anything to the answers already given. Leave must depend upon the exigencies of the Service. The process of relieving men as circumstances permit is still proceeding.
