§ GENERAL SIR GEORGE BALFOUR (Kincardine)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, If he will cause a note to be made of the armament of the Fleet and other vessels at the Review on the 23rd July, so that Members of Parliament may have access to information showing the number and variety of guns on board our Fleet?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Sir HENRY HOLLAND) (Hampstead)
(who replied), said, the armament of the ships and torpedo boats had been laid before Parliament in a Return prepared last year. The First Lord of the Admiralty regretted that the information then given could not be printed for use to-morrow.
