HC Deb 16 March 1905 vol 143 c199

I beg to ask the Lord-Advocate if he will state on how many days last year H.M.S. "Jackal" was employed on the International North Sea investigations; and was any application made to the Admiralty for the services of a cruiser to take up the sea police duties for which the "Jackal" was originally detailed.


During the year 1904 the "Jackal" was employed in connection with the North Sea Investigations for a total period of twenty-seven days, on three different occasions of nine, eight, and ten days each. No relief ship was applied for.
