§ 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.
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-54W ments, and about £2,400 in cash, all of which were public property. No private property was involved.
