HC Deb 23 March 1882 vol 267 c1658

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty, Whether important changes are contemplated in the administration and management of Greenwich Hospital School; and, if so, whether he would lay the Report of the Committee upon the Table of the House before these recommendations are carried into effect?


Sir, considerable difficulty having been experienced in obtaining suitable employment for boys educated at Greenwich School, a Committee of Inquiry was appointed to investigate the matter. Their suggestions as to dietary and training in seamanship have been adopted. There are other suggestions of a more organic character which have not as yet been considered. The Report shall certainly be laid on the Table before any final action is taken.
