HC Deb 10 August 1876 vol 231 c968

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, If he will inform the House, by laying documents upon the Table or otherwise, what results, if any, have followed the appointment, in April 1874, of a Committee to consider the rapid deterioration of boilers in Her Majesty's ships?


, in reply, said, that the Committee appointed to inquire into the causes of deterioration of boilers in Her Majesty's ships had already made two preliminary Reports to him; but he was hoping that they would, before long, make a final Report. They were waiting the results of some experiments which they had directed to be made in connection with the subject into which they were inquiring.
