§ MR. BROADHURST
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether, having regard to the recent disaster on the Norfolk coast in consequence of an attempt to land stores through heavy surf, he will consider as to the advisability of sending stores to exposed stations by the 970 ordinary railway services, and thus avoid the constant danger to life and injury to property now incurred by sending goods by naval vessels?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. W. E. MACARTNEY,) Antrim, S.
No. There does not appear to be any necessity to consider the suggestion in question.
