§ COLONEL DENNY (Kilmarnock Burghs)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty what amount of time has been incurred in overhauls on the "Hyacinth" and "Minerva" respectively since the date of handing over of former by builders; how much of the time spent in these overhauls has been expended during the financial year ending 31st March, 1903; and what has been 565 the mileage run on trials and commissions respectively by these ships since date of intimation to Boiler Committee that these vessels were ready for comparative trials.
(Answered by Mr. Arnold-Forster.) I am afraid I must ask my hon. friend to defer this Question for a few days longer. It is hoped that the information will be available by the beginning of next week, and I shall then be glad to give him a reply.
