HC Deb 10 August 1876 vol 231 cc967-8

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, If any official remonstrance has been sent to the superintendents of Her Majesty's Dockyards against the cutting of ventilating apertures in the watertight bulkheads of Her Majesty's ships; and, if so, whether he will lay the Correspondence on this subject between the Admiralty and the Dockyards upon the Table of the House?


, in reply, said, that no remonstrance had been sent, because the communications passing between the Admiralty and the Dockyards did not take the shape of a remonstrance; but the Board of Admiralty had expressed very strong dissatisfaction at what had taken place, and if the hon. Member would move for the correspondence it would be laid on the Table.
