§ MR. WILLIAM ALLAN (Gateshead)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, whether he can state the nature of the breakdown of the machinery of H.M.S. "London," when on her late 30 hours' trial.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (MR. ARNOLD-FORSTER,) Belfast, W.
The trials of the "London" were discontinued owing to the heating of the crank and shaft bearings. These are now to be re-adjusted, and the trials will be resumed shortly.
