§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is now in a position to say when the recorders at Devonport Dockyard may expect a reply to their petition presented to their lordships in 1915?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
It is presumed that the question is intended to refer to the petition presented by the recorders in 1914, no petition having been presented in 1915. A reply refusing to accede to the 1914 petition is now being sent.
