HC Deb 17 July 1924 vol 176 cc601-2W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that in certain ships where voluntary attendance at religious services has been inauguarted the results have been exceptionally good from a point of view of numbers attending; and if he will authorise certain selected ships to forego, temporarily, compulsory attendance at religious services on board for officers and men, with a view to obtaining a practical expression of the opinion of the naval service in this matter?


The Admiralty have no information as to this, but inquiries will be made.
