HC Deb 14 April 1896 vol 39 c898

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, considering the large number of sailors who come from the coasts of counties of Antrim and Down, he will consider the desirability of placing a training ship in Belfast Lough; and whether it is intended to remove the Grampian, which has been used as an industrial: school ship there?

THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY(Mr. G.J. GOSCHEN.,) St. George's, Hanover Square

(who replied to the (Question) said: In the first place, there is no intention, as I have once or twice informed the House, to multiply the number of training ships in any quarter. As to the question of the removal of the Grampian, that is a matter for the Irish local authorities, and upon it I am not informed.
