HC Deb 04 February 1881 vol 258 cc169-70

wished to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty a Question which he hoped he would be able to answer without Notice. It was, Whether there is any truth in the report that the figurehead of the "Atalanta" has been picked up and brought home to England?


The Admiralty, as far as I know, have not yet received any certain information on the subject. I may say, however, from the tone in which the Report has been discussed by the naval Lords, that I do not think they believe the figure-head belonged to the Atalanta.
