SIR HENRY TYLER (Great Yarmouth)

asked, the First Lord of the Admiralty, At what rate of speed the cruiser of Her Majesty's Fleet, stationed off Lowestoft for the protection of the fishing, is capable of steaming; and, whether the vessel in question is considered to be well adapted for that particular service?

LORD CHARLES BERESFORD (A LORD of the ADMIRALTY) () (who replied) said Marylebone, E.

The cruiser stationed off Lowestoft, the Hearty, is of 1,300 tons displacement, and 1,800 horse-power. She is capable of steaming 14 knots, and is very well adapted for the particular service in which she has been engaged. She has been also particularly fitted for it.


What steamer is stationed at Folkestone?


I cannot say at the moment.
