HC Deb 19 November 1930 vol 245 cc444-5W
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?


No, Sir. Such a step has not been taken in the past, and I see no occasion for taking it now.
