§ MAJOR EUSTACE JAMESON (Clare, W.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty if he can advise Her Majesty's Government to allow a man-of-war to be permanently stationed at Scattery Roads, in the estuary of the Shannon, as the anchorage is of the best description, and there is no warship in the Shannon?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
Her Majesty's warships are stationed at certain places on the Irish coast in the general interests of the Service, and I cannot, as at present advised, meet the wishes of the hon. and gallant Member.
