HC Deb 06 May 1903 vol 121 cc1508-9

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the stipulation in the disposal of obsolete war ships that the vessels should be broken up in the United Kingdom is abrogated in the case of the sales of vessels to take place on the 13th at Devonport.


The reply to the hon. Member's Question is in the affirmative, but the sale will be subject to conditions which will prevent any use being made of these ships, and will ensure their being broken up within a stipulated time.
