HC Deb 26 July 1872 vol 212 c1887

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If it is a fact that Mr. Beazeley has received notice of dismissal from the Trinity House for delivering a lecture on Fog Signals at the United Service Institution; and, if so, whether there is any chance of that measure being reconsidered?


said, that Mr. Beazeley had written to the Board of Trade stating that he had received notice of dismissal, and attributing it to the cause mentioned in the Question put by the hon. Member. The Board of Trade replied that it had nothing to do with the internal discipline of the Trinity House, or with the management of the officers of that establishment; and that, although they fixed its salaries, and had jurisdiction in respect to pensions, yet its sanction was not required for the appointment or dismissal of any of the officers of the Trinity House.
