HC Deb 22 December 1954 vol 535 c275W
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.
