HC Deb 20 May 1903 vol 122 c1213
MR. DOUGHTY (Great Grimsby)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he can now state whether contracts have been concluded for fitting the light vessels round the coast of the British Islands with wireless telegraphy apparatus; and, if not, whether he can state when they will be completed.


Negotiations are in progress for fitting a certain number of light vessels in the London district with wireless telegraphic apparatus. The matter will be pushed on with the least possible delay.
