HC Deb 28 July 1927 vol 209 cc1479-80W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that the type of locker at present fitted in small craft is unsuitable for the purpose intended; and whether he will consider the fitting of a larger type when circumstances admit, observing that an improved design would not entail an increase of space?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

The type of locker fitted in small craft is not considered unsuitable for the intended purpose. The question of fitting in small craft lockers of increased capacity has already been fully considered in response to a request of the 1926 Welfare Conference, and a reply has been given that considerations of space render this impossible where the lockers also have to be used at seats.
