HC Deb 03 July 1900 vol 85 c404

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, having regard to the technical character of the controversy as to the use of water-tube boilers on Her Majesty's ships, he could, for the convenience of the House, lay on the Table a Memorandum on the subject a few days before the discussion on Vote 8 of the Navy Estimates is taken.


I will see what materials for the discussion on water-tube boilers I can place before the House before the Vote is taken, but my own review of the case, which I am anxious to make as little technical as the ease admits, I propose to embody in the statement which I shall make to the House.
