§ MR. WILLIAM ALLAN (Gateshead)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he will state when H.M.S. "Highflyer" left Portsmouth for the East Indies; how long she took over the run to Malta, and from Malta to Bombay; and whether she is now having her machinery and boilers overhauled and repaired there.
§ CAPTAIN PRETYMAN
The "Highflyer" left Devonport on 28th June, and arrived at Malta on 5th July. She left Malta on 9th July, and arrived at Mauri- 685 tius on 1st August. She has not been to Bombay since her arrival on the station.
