§ 37. Mr. MACMASTER
asked at what date the "Canopus" was ordered to join the British squadron in the Pacific on the West Coast of South America; and when and from what place or port she proceeded to join that squadron?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
In order to form a true judgment upon this episode, it would be necessary for the hon. Member to know the dispositions of all the ships involved and to study the actual text of the orders under which they were acting. This is clearly impossible at present.
