asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has prepared plans to build a number of Creed or similar type seadromcs for use in the Atlantic as soon as labour and materials become available?

No, Sir. The Admiralty have recently given further detailed consideration to the possibility of constructing and operating seadromes of the type advocated by Mr. Creed. It has been decided not to proceed with the scheme. The diversion of effort and material from other war production, the time needed for construction, and the need for special docking, fitting out, and repair facilities were all among the factors taken into account in reaching this decision.
