Captain GUEST

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply on the 5th June by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House, in answer to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy), to the effect that after very careful consideration the Cabinet have decided not to adopt the course suggested.
