Mr. ALFRED T. DAVIES
asked the Lord Privy Seal how many naval stokers it is proposed to send to the Yorkshire coalfields in connection with the strike, and how many already have been sent?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The present number of naval ratings available in the district is 80 officers and 1,486 men. As this is in excess of the number at present necessary to meet the demands for assistance in pumping, no additions will be made at present.
