§ Sir I. Albery
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty with reference to lighter-men employed by his Department, what is the present age limit for drafting men for service with His Majesty's R.N. Combined Operations in the Far East.
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Colne Valley (Mr. Glenvil Hall) on 7th March, the terms of which apply equally to lightermen who form an integral part of the Naval Forces.
