§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON (Dundee)
On behalf of the hon. Member for the Clitheroe Division of Lancashire, I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether tie can make any statement as to the constitution of the Committee on Boilers for Her Majesty's ships.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. GOSCHEN,) St. George's, Hanover Square
We have been busily engaged on the constitution of this Committee, but I have not yet received answers to some of the communications I have addressed to various gentlemen.
§ MR. WOLFF (Belfast, E.)
Can the right hon. Gentleman inform us whether the Commission will be a paid Commission?
§ MR. GOSCHEN
It is under consideration. I think, yes. Some gentlemen will be employed from whom we can scarcely claim that they shall give gratuitous service.
