HC Deb 17 June 1896 vol 41 c1246

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty a Question of which I have given him private notice—whether it is a fact, as appeared to be suggested in a letter in The Times to-day, that no Naval manœuvres are to take place this year?

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

No, it is not a fact. Manœuvres will take place, and the First Sea Lord has for some time been engaged in preparing a scheme for their execution.
