HC Deb 09 August 1882 vol 273 c1278

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether it was true, as stated in The Standard, that captains of British Men of War had orders from the Admiralty not to escort ships through the Suez Canal, whereas German men of war escorted ships of their own nationality through the Canal?


I have not had time to see The Standard of this morning; perhaps the hon. and gallant Gentleman will give Notice of that Question.
