To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, with reference to the proposed torpedo range in Loch Long, if he will say what will be the guaranteed minimum widths of the fairway navigable by the passenger steamers on Loch Long between the eastern side of the proposed torpedo range and the eastern side of the Loch at Ardmay Point, at Morlaggan, and at the target end of the range, respectively.

( Answered by Mr. Lambert.) These facts will all be brought out and discussed at the meeting on the 21st August. The proposal in the draft by-laws, Paragraph 8, is that the officer in charge of the range shall take care not to discharge a torpedo when a vessel or boat is seen to be about to cross the limits of the range area described in By-law 1.
