HC Deb 21 April 1899 vol 70 cc219-20
SIR. C. DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is now in a position to state the improved arrangements for training the Naval Reserve at Bristol; and whether it is now decided that a gunboat is to be attached to the training-hulk "Dædalus" at Bristol, as has been done with H. M. S. "President" in London Docks, for the effective training of Royal Naval Reserve men?


Orders have been given for H. M. S. "Antelope," 1st class torpedo gunboat, to be commissioned on the 4th May, for employment in training officers and men of the Royal Naval Reserve. Her headquarters will be at Portishead.
