HC Deb 13 December 1900 vol 88 cc684-5

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.


The "Highflyer" left Devonport on 28th June, and arrived at Malta on 5th July. She left Malta on 9th July, and arrived at Mauri- tius on 1st August. She has not been to Bombay since her arrival on the station.
