HC Deb 07 May 1908 vol 188 c410

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, in view of the fact that the cruiser "Terrible" broke her propeller shaft on 28th September, 1906, and has been lying at Portsmouth ever since her return, can he state by what date all repairs and the refit of this vessel will be completed, and so render her able to perform services in repayment of the great outlay on capital cost and subsequent upkeep; and for what length of time a nucleus crew has been on board this vessel.


All repairs and refit will be completed by the end of the current year. She has had a nucleus crew on board since November, 1906.
