HC Deb 13 June 1906 vol 158 c949
MR. ASHLEY (Lancashire, Blackpool)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will take into consideration the advisability of approaching the London County Council with a view to substituting steam turbines for the reciprocating engines at present in use at the London County Council's power station at Greenwich, in order to abolish the vibration at present experienced at the Royal Observatory.


At the present stage of this extremely serious question, the Admiralty do not consider that it would be in the interests of the public service to make any statement on the subject.
