HC Deb 05 April 1910 vol 16 cc205-6

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, with a view of bringing the Naval Service in touch with all classes of the community, arrangements could be made for the Channel Fleet to visit the tail of the bank on the Clyde?


Before the right hon. Gentleman answers the question may I ask him to consider the claims of Aberystwith, Aberagron, Aberdovey, Barmouth, Borth, Criccieth, and the principal ports of Cardigan and Carnarvon Bays?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. McKenna)

I shall always bear in mind all the ports of Wales. The fleets will be so fully occupied in carrying out necessary exercises in the immediate future that I regret there is no likelihood of a visit to the tail of the bank.
