MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the Inspecting Commander of Coastguards, lately appointed to the Wicklow station, whose headquarters are in Wicklow town, and whose duty and service require his presence on the coast, lives several miles inland; and whether this is in accordance with the regulations of the Coastguard system?
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN,) Worcestershire, E.
The Inspection Commander of the Wicklow Division of Coastguards resides at Glenealy, four miles from Wicklow, as no suitable house could be obtained by him in Wicklow, or nearer than Glenealy. This is in accordance with the regulations of the Coastguard.
