HC Deb 31 March 1876 vol 228 c964

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether it is a fact that Captain His Serene Highness the Prince of Leiningen, for the greater security of the Royal Yacht under his command, has applied to have "Martin's anchor" supplied to the "Victoria and Albert," and whether this application was refused; and, upon whom would the responsibility devolve in the event of a casualty arising, such as recently occurred to H.M.S. "Serapis," with his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales on board?


It is not the fact, Sir, that any such application has been made by the captain of the Royal Yacht.
