§ MR. THORNTON (Clapham)
I bog to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the Board of Admiralty have considered the Memorial addressed to them by the clerks of the Second Division in October last; and when a reply to that Memorial will be given?
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. E. ROBERTSON,), Dundee
who replied, said: The Memorial, which was dated October 29, has been under the consideration of the heads of the various Admiralty Departments previous to being submitted to the Board. There are many points involved; and it is not practicable to state when a reply will be given, as the Memorial will have to be submitted to the Treasury.
