HC Deb 23 June 1876 vol 230 c336

asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether he has received the Report of the Dover Harbour Commissioners with respect to the conduct of the Captain of the tug "Palmerston," on the late lamentable collision off Dover; and, whether he has any objection to lay it upon the Table?


in reply, said, that an inquiry had been held on the 16th instant by Mr. Rothery, assisted by Captains Harris and White, as nautical assessors from the Board of Trade. The Dover Harbour Commissioners, by whom the inquiry had been directed would, no doubt, send him the Report, and he would then consider what portion of it it would be desirable to lay on the Table.
