WELLINGTON, April 4
The Minister of Marine, at a presentation of medals to boys on the Amokura to-day, said he was satisfied that the time had come when the vessei
would have to be put out of commission as a training ship. He had asked Cabinet to communicate with the Prime Minister requesting him to endeavour to secure an up-to-date ship from the 'Admiralty—if possible, a, snip, with a war history. His aim was to place in our waters a ship which would meet all requirements for some time to come—a much bigger boat than the' Amokura. He had received a cablegram from Mr Massey saying that the request of Cabinet had been received, and that he was already in touch with the Admiralty with a view to obtaining such a boat.
