HC Deb 18 July 1889 vol 338 c707
MR. MARK STEWART (Kirkcudbrightshire)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will give instructions to Officers commanding ships in the forthcoming Naval Manœuvres, that, subject to the exigencies of warfare, as little disturbance as possible should be made on Sundays?

THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord G. Hamilton,) Middlesex, Ealing

Naval operations cannot be summarily suspended on the Sunday and recommenced next day; but every care will be taken to disturb as little as is possible the sanctity of the Sabbath.
