asked the Secretary of State for Defence if, in view of his answer of 4 May, Official Report, column 31, about the difficulties of communication with Her Majesty's submarines in operational conditions and the natural concealment of the submarines, he will make a statement on communications with HMS "Conqueror", on 14 May involving family messages.
