§ Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the future dependence of the country on the grid system of electricity supply and the highly technical character of the work, whether he will arrange with the Admiralty for naval ratings to be specially trained so that an alternative service of personnel may be always available?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
No, Sir. Such a step has not been taken in the past, and I see no occasion for taking it now.
