MR. THOMAS B. CURRAN
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty, if the Channel Fleet is now 1164 going round the Irish coast; and, whether arrangements will be made for it to visit Lough Swilly and Lough Foyle?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
No undertaking can be given that the Channel Squadron will visit any particular ports. Discretion is left to the Admiral to dispose of his Squadron according to what he may think the best method for promoting its efficiency.
