Sir H. COWAN
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is now in a position to indicate the terms and conditions of the Admiralty scheme for providing drifters for ex-Service fishermen; and on what date it is proposed that the scheme should come into operation?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The scheme is at this moment under discussion between the Admiralty and the Treasury. The terms and conditions are not yet settled, and it is not yet possible to say on what date the scheme will come into operation. It is hoped, however, that the main lines of the proposed scheme will be settled at an early date.
