HC Deb 16 October 1940 vol 365 c719W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Minister of Shipping whether he will consider the desirability of issuing from time to time complete lists of mercantile marine casualties suffered, on the same lines as the lists of casualties issued for the Army, Navy and Air Force?

Mr. Cross

I have decided to issue from time to time complete lists of the names of the members of the Merchant Navy and fishing fleets who lose their lives owing to enemy action. I hope that the first list, covering approximately the first six months of the war, will he issued this week.
