MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the repairs said to be required by Her Majesty's guardships Triumph and Starling will be executed at Cork; and whether the Admiralty will allow some of the numerous steam launches lying idle at Haulbowline quays to be utilised, especially in bad weather, to convey Government employés to and from their work every evening?
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. E. ROBERTSON,) Dundee
Inquiries are being made as to the executing the repairs of Triumph and Starling at Haulbowline. Inquiries are also being made as to the launches.
