HC Deb 17 December 1906 vol 167 c1010
MR. BOWERMAN (Deptford)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he has received the Report of the Committee which recently visited the mechanicians' training establishment at Devonport, the cadets' training establishments at Dartmouth and Osborne, and the boy artificers' establishments at Portsmouth and Chatham; and, if so, if he will state the nature of such Reports, and lay them upon the Table of the House for the information of Members.


Four hon. Members who are specially interested in questions of mechanical training and general education in the Navy, at the invitation of the Admiralty, visited the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth and the training establishments at Devonport and Portsmouth. They did not form a Committee and had no reference, and it is not proposed to publish the private notes and suggestions which they subsequently sent to me.
