§ LORD BALCARRES (Lancashire, N., Chorley)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, how many months the pair of 18-ton guns has been lying on the seashore at Kinghorn?
§ MR. BRODRICK
The guns were removed from Inchkeith to their present position at Kinghorn-Ness in 1892. They would have been mounted long ago but for the difficulty in obtaining the site for a battery, which had at last to be taken compulsorily. It is expected that the works will be completed this year.
