§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether, having regard to the fact that an additional training ship is about to be commissioned, and in view of the promise recently given, the Admiralty will avail of this occasion to consider the claims of Queenstown as a station for a training ship?
SIR U. KAY-SHUTTLEWORTH
It is not intended that the Northampton, the ship about to be commissioned for the training of boys, should be stationary at any one port. She differs from the ordinary boys' training ships in that she takes boys of a greater age, and for six months' training only. She will visit various ports, including Queenstown.
