§ 9. Mr. Langford-Holt
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the normal full complement of H.M.S. "Mauritius"; how many officers and ratings are at present accommodated on board; and whether he is satisfied that accommodation is adequate and feeding facilities are satisfactory.
§ Mr. J. P. L. Thomas
H.M.S. "Mauritius" has normal accommodation for 690 officers and men. 551 are fully accommodated on board and they are not overcrowded. There are a further 267 men attached to the ship who take their midday and occasionally other meals on board. Because of repairs there has recently been a certain amount of congestion at midday meal-time but this should improve shortly.
