§ 45. Mr. Ian Harvey
asked the Prime Minister when it is proposed to appoint a Select Committee to consider the Naval Discipline Act with a view to bringing it into line with the recently reformed Army Act and Air Force Act.
§ The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. R. A. Butler)
I have been asked to reply.
Arrangements are now being made to set up a Select Committee to consider the Naval Discipline Act, and the necessary Motion will be tabled very shortly.
§ Mr. Harvey
Is my right hon. Friend aware that this reply will give great satisfaction on both sides of the House? It is most encouraging to feel that the Navy can now keep abreast of the other two Services.
