§ MR. STEWART MACLIVER
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty, If a decision has yet been arrived at respecting the applications for Royal Naval Artillery Volunteers to be enrolled at Plymouth and other places?
§ SIR THOMAS BRASSEY
The decision with reference to applications for the enrolment of Royal Naval Artillery Volunteers has been postponed until a general scheme of defence has been matured, based upon the Report of the Committee on the Defence of the Commercial Harbours. The Admiralty are not at present prepared to entertain the question of increasing the Force.
