HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 cc418-9W

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that there is a considerable amount of opinion through- out Orkney that there is an immense amount of useless expenditure of money going on; and if he will make every possible inquiry to ascertain if this is the case?


An inquiry could, of course, be held. But I think my hon. Friend should, in the first instance, supply us with specific indication of the extravagance alleged.
