§ 19. Colonel BURN
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will favourably consider the petition of the mayor and town council of Torquay that one of His Majesty's new battleships or cruisers shall be named "Torquay," seeing that so many of the bluejackets belong to that town and neighbourhood?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The hon. and gallant Member's suggestion shall receive consideration, but I can give no undertaking.
§ Colonel BURN
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the importance of that neighbourhood, and more especially Tor Bay, giving a wider area than Torquay itself, seeing that many men are drawn from Tor Bay?
