§ MR. KNATCHBULL-HUGESSEN (Kent, Faversham)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty what steps have been taken to expend the £3,000 voted in the Naval Estimates for 1892–93 for the development of the Gunnery School at Sheerness; and why no provision is made for its further development in this year's Estimates?
§ MR. E. ROBERTSON
The Gunnery School has been established at Sheerness, and the present Board intend to carry out a scheme for providing the necessary ground and buildings for its proper development. The scheme first proposed had to be modified; and, pending further 1854 consideration, it was not possible to spend the £3,000 voted in 1892–93, and it was thought better to reconsider the whole scheme.
