§ Mr. Shinwell
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that a convoy recently arrived which had averaged a speed of 7 knots, included a vessel carrying important munitions which is capable of doing 16 knots; and whether he can give an assurance that better arrangements can be made in future?
§ Sir V. Warrender
The vessel to which the hon. Member refers belong to one of our Allies and was included in the convoy at their especial request.
