HC Deb 15 May 1941 vol 371 c1275W
Mr. Stokes

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty on what regular date each month the monthly return of shipping losses will in future be made public?

Mr. Alexander

It is the present intention that this return should be made public about the middle of the month. My hon. Friend will appreciate that events may sometimes make it impossible to adhere to any regular date. As regards the policy governing the publication of shipping losses I would refer him to the reply given on 13th May by the Prime Minister to the hon. and gallant Member for Lewes (Rear-Admiral Beamish).
