HC Deb 09 August 1905 vol 151 cc804-5
MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, during the visit of the French fleet, it is proposed to continue the display of signboards and bunting in connection with the Nelson Centenary Exhibition in Whitehall.


I have no control over the matter referred to. I am confident that no officer or seaman of the French fleet will take exception to our doing honour to our greatest sailor in the centenary of his death.


Who has control? As a matter of fact, since the Question has appeared the bunting has been removed but not the signboards.
