HC Deb 10 June 1903 vol 123 cc446-7

I beg further to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty is the Admiralty aware that the Babcock and Wilcox water-tube boilers in the Allan liners "Buenos Ayrean" and "Siberian" are being removed and Scotch boilers are to be substituted.


Yes, Sir, the Admiralty are aware that it is the intention of the Allan Line to replace the Babcock and Wilcox boiler fitted in the "Buenos Ayrean" by a cylindrical boiler. There is no Babcock and Wilcox boiler in the "Siberian"
