asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether steps can be taken to publish the Report of the Joint Army and Navy Board appointed by the United States Government to inquire into sea and air power as a White Paper?

I am afraid that owing to the expense involved the printing of this Report on the results of the United States bombing and gunfire experiments with ex-German ships would not be justified, especially as it was published in the American Press last autumn. I shall, however, be happy to supply typed copies to any hon. Members who may be interested.

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this Report, not only deals with the bombing of ex-German ships, but also gives very valuable conclusions arrived at by the Committee set up by the United States Government?

It is a very interesting Report and I shall be very happy to send any hon. Member who likes to write to me, a typed copy.

Would it not be better to send a typed copy to the Library of the House of Commons?
