HC Deb 31 May 1883 vol 279 cc1307-8

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, If he will lay upon the Table of the House, Copy of Proceedings and Sentence of Court Martial on F. Maxwell-Heron, late Commander of H.M.S. "Clyde," with any Correspondence ensuing thereon?


I regret, Sir, that I am unable to comply with my hon. and gallant Friend's request, as it is not according to usual practice to lay on the Table a Copy of the proceedings of a Naval court mar- tial. I have made inquiry, and find that there is no record of such a publication within the last 50 years.
