§ Mr. COCHRANE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in arranging the cruise of the Fleet near the shores of Scotland, he could detach any portion to visit the Clyde and the seaports of Ayrshire?
§ The SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
The Clyde is frequently visited by his Majesty's ships, and the Vice-Admiral, with part of the Third Division of the Home Fleet, is now there. The selection of the ports to be visited rests with the officer in command.
