§ Major TASKER
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will call for a Report from the responsible officer as to 728W what, if any, precautions were taken to ensure Lord Kitchener's safety on his mission to Russia in June, 1916?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
The answer is in the negative. The Admiralty saw no reason to question the actions of the responsible Naval authorities either in regard to the selection of the route or the precautions taken; nor do they now. I think it desirable to add that this applies also to the efforts at rescue by sea and land after the disaster.
