§ 128. Mr. Steele
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what was the cost involved in diving operations and other activities in connection with investigations into the disappearance of scrap cable worth 5s. 4d. at the Torpedo Range, Arrochar.
§ Mr. Orr-Ewing
These diving operations involved additional expenditure of about £15 10s. 0d. The importance of the scrap cable was not its cash value but the fact that it had been stolen from the establishment's Police Office, where it was being held as material evidence in a pending charge of theft.
