§ MR. WILLIAM ALLAN (Gateshead)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, whether he can state what was the co-efficient of fineness of H.M.S. "Condor," reported lost, and what was the height of her bulwarks above the deck.
§ * THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. ARNOLD-FORSTER,) Belfast, W.
The block co-efficient of fineness of the "Condor" is .52. The height of the bulwarks above the upper deck is 4 feet, 3 inches.
§ MR. WILLIAM ALLAN
Does the hon. Gentleman consider this co-efficient of fineness necessary for a ship of this kind?
