§ MR. J. A. PEASE (Northumberland, Tyneside)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether a war ship is now stationed at Zanzibar; if not, what steps have been taken to carry out the intention of the Government in regard to this matter.
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN,) Worcestershire, E.
The third class cruiser "Barrosa" was sent to Zanzibar in May last with orders to remain during the monsoon months, which last from May to the end of September. There is no intention of removing her at present.
