HC Deb 11 January 1894 vol 20 cc1329-30

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether satisfactory arrangements have been made between the Home Office and the Admiralty to admit of the reformatory and industrial school ships being properly inspected every year by some naval officers of captain's rank, in accordance with the official assurance; whether any of the ships in question have been since so inspected; and will the Reports of such inspection, with the officer's name attached, be inserted in the usual Annual Report laid upon the Table?


The Admiralty and the Home Office have agreed to the general arrangements for the inspection of reformatory and industrial school ships; but certain details have yet to be settled, though this is not expected to take long. It is intended to hold an actual inspection, in accordance with the arrangements come to, in the course of the next financial year.
