§ SIR MORTON PETO
said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary for War, If the Government intend to proceed with the Forts in the Roadstead of Spithead?
MR. T. G. BARING
said, the Government had considered this matter with great care, and proposed to continue the con- 1651 struction of these forts. He might add that the Paper moved for the other day by the hon. Baronet had been presented, and would probably be in the hands of hon. Members to-morrow.
