asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many fishing vessels of the drifter and trawler types still remain in his hands for disposal; and how it is proposed to deal with them?

There are only three drifters now in the hands of the Admiralty for sale. Offers are now being invited for sale of these, and it is expected they will be readily disposed of. There are 75 Admiralty trawlers at present available for disposal, and the Admiralty are continuing to sell these vessels in the open market.
