HL Deb 19 June 1873 vol 216 cc1150-1

thought it might be for the convenience of their Lordships if he were to state that His Majesty the Shah of Persia would leave London for Portsmouth at 8.30 on Monday morning, and would reach Portsmouth about 10.30. A.M. A vessel, The Simoom, had been set apart for such of their Lordships as might desire to attend the naval review, which would leave the Dockyard at 9.30; and he believed arrangements were being made in connection with the House for a special train. The tickets, which would be issued by the Admiralty to-morrow, would not be transferable. The Admiralty were anxious to consult their Lordships' wishes as to ladies, and a certain number of tickets would be provided; but much would, of course, depend on how many of their Lordships put down their names as intending to go, and he should be glad if any Peer who did not wish to take a lady with him would intimate the fact. In any case, no more than one lady would be allowed to accompany a noble Lord.
