asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what information will be given in the editions of the Navy List which are to be published for public use.
The edition of the Navy List which is to be placed on sale to the public will contain lists of officers of the Royal Navy and its Reserves, showing their seniority, and where they are serving, together with a list of His. Majesty's ships and the officers serving in them. Corresponding information on the Commonwealth Navies will also be given.
Can the hon. Gentleman say whether any information at present given in the Navy List is to be excluded from the general edition?
Yes; naturally, as I said last time, this will not contain quite as much information as has been contained in the restricted edition available for hon. Members.
