§ SIR JOHN HAY
said, he would beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty. If it is true that a portion of the Grant made by this House to the captors of Kertch and Yenikale has been bestowed upon three Flag Officers who were not serving in the Black Sea Fleet, or present at the capture?
§ Lord CLARENCE PAGET,
in reply, said, it was true that a portion of the Grant had been awarded to Admiral Boxer, Sir Montague Stopford, and Sir Frederick Grey, who were not actually present at the capture of Kertch. But the Naval Prize Proclamation of 1854, issued at the opening of the war, gave a share to all Flag Officers upon the station; and the award of the Kertch money was ordered to be distributed "according to the rules of our Naval Service, and in accordance with our Proclamation of March 29, 1854."
