§ 18. Lord C. BERESFORD
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty are asking men of the Royal Fleet Reserve to re-enter the Navy; and, if so, will he inform the House how many men have accepted the offer?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
As a temporary measure, men belonging to Class B of the Royal Fleet Reserve who have served as Special Service seamen and stokers have been allowed to re-enter for a further term of three years' service in the Fleet. Eight seamen and forty stokers have re-entered under these conditions.
