§ Sir A. SHIRLEY BENN
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he can state the number of men who, during the War, avoided punishment by volunteering for the Navy; whether they are in the Service permanently or only for hostilities; and whether any of them have shown that the loyal and patriotic spirit of the Navy has failed to reform them?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I have no information on the subject raised in the first part of the question. I understand my hon. Friend should inquire of the Home Office. It is therefore not possible for me to deal at present with the other parts of the question.
