§ Mr. BURGOYNE
asked whether there are any midshipmen at present in a train- 2075 ing ship who, though three months have elapsed of their third year, have had no naval instructor appointed to help them in their studies; and, if so, what steps will be taken to prevent such omission operating to their detriment on examination for passing out?
§ The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Churchill)
Only four midshipmen of the seniority referred to are serving in ships without a naval instructor. These left their naval instructor only seventeen days ago.
