§ MR. NIELD (Middlesex, Ealing)
To ask the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will say what is the number and percentage of the men composing the crews of the Altantic, Channel, Home (Nore Division), and Mediterranean Fleets respectively, who, during the past twelve months have been tried by court martial for offences against discipline.
(Answered by Mr. McKenna.) The number of men tried by court martial n the various fleets is given in a quarterly Return, a copy of the latest issue of which I have sent to the hon. Member It is not clear from the Question on what 1179 basis the hon. Member desires the percentage calculation to be made, but on any basis they would involve an amount of labour out of proportion to any advantage which it would seem could be gained from the result.
