HC Deb 01 August 1890 vol 347 c1545
SIR JOHN COLOMB (Tower Hamlets, Bow)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty what steps have been taken to give practical effect to the information gained by the experiments carried on against H.M.S. Resistance; and has information been obtained by Her Majesty's Government relative to the experiments carried on at Toulon on the same lines as the Resistance experiments?


The Admiralty have given full consideration to the valuable results of the experiments made upon the Resistance, and have taken such steps as appear desirable, more especially as regards the defence of gun crews and the improvement of ammunition. It is not, however, desirable in the public interests that I should give particulars.

Forward to
