HC Deb 28 February 1859 vol 152 cc965-6

said, he had to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state, with reference to Mr. F. H. Dyke's letter of the 28th of July, 1858, to Mr. G. A. Hamilton, in the case of the ship Newport (Parliamentary Paper, No. 28, of the present Session), the amount of costs and damages allowed and paid, and the balance, if any, remaining to be paid, in respect of the appeal to Her Majesty in Council, by which the condemnation of the said ship in the Vice-Admiralty Court of St. Helena was reversed.


said, the damages in both cases amounted to £2,142 6s., and the liquidation to £690 0s. 9d., leaving a balance of £1,452 5s. 3d. The costs incurred amounted to £2,206, and the Bill was taxed and paid on the 20th of September. Mr. Dyke was at present unable to state what were the costs on the part of the Crown, inasmuch as they had not yet been taxed.
