HC Deb 16 June 1902 vol 109 cc697-8

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he can now state if the arrangement carried out at the Diamond Jubilee Naval Review, by which a special train for Members left London at 9 a.m., and returned immediately after the Review, will be repeated at the Coronation Review of the Fleet.


No such arrangement as that referred to by the hon. and gallant Member was made in 1897 by the Board of Admiralty. The Board has on the present occasion undertaken the responsibility of arranging a service of trains in connection with all the ships chartered by them for the conveyance of visitors. I presume that any arrangements for a special train such as that to which the hon. and gallant Member refers were made by the officers of the House for the convenience of hon. Members.
