§ MR. BROADHURST (Leicester)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade when further progress will be made in connecting lightships and lighthouses with the shore by electric cables?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THH BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. C. T. RITCHIE,) Croydon
At the present time three additional lighthouses are in course of being connected with the shore by electric cables. It has been thought better to postpone the work of connecting more lightships pending further results of the experiments with the system of wireless telegraphy.
