HC Deb 17 April 1905 vol 145 cc291-2
SIR JOHN COLOMB (Great Yarmouth)

To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if he will state whether it is under consideration to use Bermuda as a place for continuing the studies and training on shore of naval cadets; and, if so, whether full information will be given to Parliament explanatory of the proposal before any final step is taken or arrangements made to carry it out.

(Answered by Mr. Pretyman.) There is no intention to establish a training school for cadets at Bermuda. Owing to the approaching occupation of Dartmouth College by the cadets from Osborne, it has been decided to embark the remaining "Britannia" cadets on two training cruisers, which will winter at Bermuda. One term will be on board for three months and one for six months.
