HC Deb 13 July 1899 vol 74 c681
MR. PENN (Lewisham)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty how many the "Sharpshooter" has run on her boiler trials, how many tubes has she in her boilers, and how many tubes have been renewed during these trials.


The number of miles run on boiler trials, exclusive of distance run during contractors' trials, was 8,698. The number of tubes in boilers is 1,080. No tubes were renewed during these trials.
