HC Deb 06 March 1905 vol 142 c404
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if he will state the speed of the ''Harrier" gunboat, and the cruiser "Barham;" when did they commence fishery duties; and what waters do they respectively control.


The speed at authorised natural draught of the "Harrier" is 16.4 knots per hour, and that of the "Barham" 18.7 knots per hour. These vessels commenced duties in charge of fisheries in Scottish waters and in the North Sea on February 13th and 4th respectively.
