Viscount SANDON

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many ships and with what tonnage, British and otherwise, have been sunk as a result of striking mines since Armistice Day?


Forty-nine British vessels totalling 24,268 tons gross have been sunk as the result of striking mines since 11th November, 1918. I am not in a position to give the corresponding particulars relating to foreign ships.
