HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 cc898-9W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the numbers of men in the naval forces will be reduced in view of the fact that during the recent strikes it has been found possible to dispense with the services of so many men from naval duties?


No, Sir. The strength of the naval personnel will continue to be fixed with reference to the numbers required, in the opinion of the Admiralty, for the manning of the Fleet.
