§ 1. Mr. GINNELL
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether it was in obedience to instructions from the Admiralty the acting captain of the "Lusitania" on her last voyage slackened the speed of that vessel when approaching the Irish coast; and what was the purpose of that slackening?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The second part, therefore, does not arise.
