HC Deb 14 March 1898 vol 54 cc1515-6

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will consider the advisability of placing a training ship in Galway Bay, in order to give the young men along the Western coast an opportunity of joining the Navy, and thereby relieve, to some extent, the congestion at present prevailing?

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

No, Sir. I am unable to give such a pledge.
