HC Deb 26 April 1906 vol 156 c16
MR. ASHLEY (Lancashire, Blackpool)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the London County Council have recently erected a power station on the Meridian, close to Greenwich Observatory; that the vibration caused by the engines and the smoke interfere with the use of instruments; and whether it will be possible in the future to rely on observations taken there for the purpose of the Nautical Almanack.


The matter is receiving consideration.
