§ MR. GILHOOLY (Cork Co., W.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is prepared to recommend a grant for the enlargement of the Catholic Chapel at Bere Island, in which the accommodation is insufficient for sailors of Her Majesty's ships and coastguards, in addition to the ordinary congregation who attend there?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
I regret that I am unable to recommend a grant for the enlargement of the Catholic Chapel at Bere Island. Her Majesty's ships visit Berehaven only intermittently, and therefore it has been thought preferable that arrangements should be made for holding special services, for which a 190 fixed rate of remuneration would be paid in addition to the authorized capitation grant.
