HC Deb 09 March 1910 vol 14 c1594W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty yacht is maintained by the nation solely for use upon official work?


I understand that in recent times the general practice has been that when the Admiralty yacht has been used official purposes have been in view. I daresay the hon. Member, who is a great student of naval history, could find many instances during the last hundred years when the official purpose was not directly apparent.
