§ MR. NIELD (Middlesex, Ealing)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if H.M.S. "Phœnix" has been sold; and, if so, what was the price realised and received; and by what ship the "Phœnix" has now been replaced.
§ MR. LAMBERT
The "Phœnix" was sold at Hong Kong by public auction and realised £2,242. As this vessel was one of a number of small craft reduced from the active strength of the fleet in December, 1904, it is not proposed to replace her.
