HC Deb 27 January 1818 vol 37 c19
Lord Cochrane

wished to know whether or not the Lords of the Admiralty had come to the resolution of appropriating any part of the Droits of the Admiralty towards the relief of those distressed seamen, whose wretched state gave such pain to every person of any feeling.

Mr. W. Dundas

said, he was not instructed to make any communication on the subject alluded to by the noble lord.

Lord Cochrane

said, if a proportion of the Droits was not applied towards the relief of the persons in question, he would take an early day of bringing forward a motion on the subject.
