HC Deb 06 March 1940 vol 358 cc407-8W
Mr. Parker

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will consider commemorating one of our country's greatest admirals by naming one of the new battleships the "Blake"?

Mr. Churchill

I can assure the hon. Member that the possibility of naming one of His Majesty's ships after this great sea captain will be, borne in mind when names for new ships are being considered.
