asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will state what is the number of the naval personnel and reserves of the United States, France, Italy, and Japan at the latest available date; and whether he will include such figures in future issues of the Fleets Return?
Sir B. EYRES MONSELL:
As regards the first part of the question, I will with my hon. and gallant Friend's permission, circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT the approximate numbers of naval personnel. As regards the second part of the question, the possibility of including such figures in future issues of the Fleets Return will be considered before the next Return becomes due for issue.
