HC Deb 08 December 1938 vol 342 c1380W
Sir I. Albery

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty, in view of the decrease in the number of men regularly employed in sea-fishing in Great Britain, whether any steps are being taken to make good this decrease in a vital reserve for naval and auxiliary services?

Colonel Llewellin

The value of this potential reserve is fully appreciated. I am glad to say that at present the numbers are sufficient to enable naval requirements to be met.
