§ 40. Commander Viscount CURZON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Shipping Controller if he will issue a Return, giving full particulars in detail in each case of the loss of all ships in the 738 Mercantile Marine during the War; and whether due to enemy action or to other causes?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of SHIPPING (Colonel L. Wilson)
The matter is one for the Admiralty and Board of Trade rather than for the Shipping Controller. I understand that these Departments are now considering the form in which particulars of the losses of merchant ships from all causes, during the War, can best be published.
