HC Deb 07 August 1899 vol 76 c10
MR. HOGAN (Tipperary, Mid.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether it is proposed to establish an effective coaling station in connection with the Calliope Dock at Auckland, New Zealand; and whether he is aware that the Governor of New Zealand recently referred to the difficulty experienced in promptly coaling Her Majesty's ship "Tauranga" at Auckland.


It is proposed to do what is necessary for the purpose of providing an efficient dock at Auckland, but I do not wish, in connection with this subject, to use language which may cause disillusionment afterwards.
