HC Deb 07 August 1924 vol 176 cc3113-4W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if His Majesty's ships "Carlisle," "Ambrose," "Foxglove," and certain submarines, in addition to the "Tamar," were together in Hong Kong during the month of June last; and will he state the approximate number of men who were then in the port and the number of ratings who were accommodated at the sanatorium at the Peak during June, 1924?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The total complement of the vessels would be, approximately, 1,320. The sanatorium was not employed during June, as the hot weather had not set in, and, in fact, the sanatorium is generally shrouded in mist during that month.
