HC Deb 03 May 1860 vol 158 cc561-2

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether it is the intention of the Government to replace immediately the Gunboats now stated to be in a rotten condition, and, if so, whether any addition to the Naval Estimates will be necessary?


said, the repairs of the gunboats had cost a more considerable sum than was anticipated, but in the Estimates the Admiralty had taken a sum for repairs, and there was also an item for gunboats, so that it would not be necessary to propose an addition to the Estimates in consequence of these larger repairs.
