§ MR. HARMSWORTH (Caithnessshire)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if he can state whether the sights of every ship in the China Squadron have been recently altered by the armourers or artificers of the respective vessels.
(Answered by Mr. Arnold-Forster.) No Report to this effect has been received, but the battleships have been prepared for the reception of the improved pattern sight, so as to avoid delay after delivery.
