§ Mr. NEWMAN
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty for what reasons the training ship "Emerald" was removed from Queenstown Harbour?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The use of the "Emerald" as a training ship for Irish boys was discontinued in 1906, as the number raised was insufficient to justify the cost of employing her for this special purpose. Until 1910 she was used as receiving ship at Queenstown, and was then replaced by the "Hood."
