§ MR. HUDSON KEARLEY (Devonport)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether application has recently been made to the Admiralty by the Commissioners of the Patriotic Fund, inviting them to intrust to the Commissioners for administration certain Naval or Greenwich Funds; and, whether any decision has been arrived at; if so, will he state the nature of it?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
Some discussion has taken place on the point raised in the first question of the hon. Member. The Admiralty have fully considered the subject, and have decided that it would not be 505 desirable to transfer to the Commissioners of the Patriotic Fund the administration of any of the Naval or Greenwich Hospital Funds now under their control.
