§ Mr. STRAUSS
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the percentage of killed was greater in the submarine service than in any other branch of the Services?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The percentage of killed in the various branches of the naval Service cannot at present be determined, but it may be stated that the percentage in the submarine service is very high, and is estimated at about 19 per cent. of the numbers employed in that service.
