HC Deb 11 March 1889 vol 333 c1402
SIR J. SWINBURNE (Staffordshire, Lichfield)

May I ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he has received any further information with regard to Her Majesty's ship Sultan?


I have not received any news to-day, but late last night I received a telegram informing; me that the first attempt to tow the Sultan off had failed, but that they were hopeful to get her off on the next attempt.
