HC Deb 16 June 1902 vol 109 c698

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the Colonial visitors who are to witness the Coronation Naval Review from on board the "Teutonic" will also be allowed the opportunity of witnessing the illuminations of the Fleet on the night of the review from that vessel.


I regret that I am not yet in a position to give a definite reply to the hon. Member's question, as final arrangements have not been made. The Admiralty is doing all that is possible to meet the wishes of Colonial visitors in this as in other respects. I must remind the hon. Member that in view of the very large number of ships which will be present at Spithead, and of the number of visitors, it is difficult to make arrangements involving the landing of large numbers of passengers late at night without causing inconvenience and discomfort.
