§ CAPTAIN M'CALMONT (Antrim, E.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the armour plates of H.M.S. Trafalgar, lately launched at Portsmouth, have been fixed on with the screw bolts, invented by the late Sir William Palliser?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
The bolts used in fixing the armour-plates of the Trafalgar have reduced shanks, as proposed by the late Sir William Palliser. In other details they are not made on his plan.
