HC Deb 06 February 1900 vol 78 c713
SIR CAMERON GULL (Devonshire, Barnstaple)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, when any of the coastguard in whose houses the coast telephonic communication is placed are mobilised, any, and if so what, steps are taken to insure the proper working of the telephone during their absence.


The question of the hon. Baronet relates, I presume, to the civilian services rendered by the coast guard in charge of telephonic arrangements for life-saving purposes along the coast. The Admiralty and the Board of Trade are in communication with each other on this subject. The organisation of the war signal stations is complete.
