HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 cc53-4W
30. Sir G. Fox

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that there has been a second large theft of safes from R.N. stations; what were the contents; what were the names of personnel who had property in the safes; and what was the value of the property stolen.

Mr. Dugdale

Yes, Sir. Two safes were stolen from "President I" at Chelsea Court, on Chelsea Embankment, during the night of 21st August. The safes contained notes, certain accountancy docu- ments, and about £2,400 in cash, all of which were public property. No private property was involved.
