HC Deb 13 February 1930 vol 235 c616W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether it is the intention of his Department to prepare the cruiser "Dartmouth" for service for the Devonport torpedo school in the place of "Defiance I": and, if not, what the intention of the Admiralty is?


The condition of the vessels constituting the "Defiance" establishment necessitates consideration being given to their replacement. Until permanent arrangements can be effected, "Dartmouth" is being made available to accommodate personnel.
