§ MR. STOREY
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether, as the Foreign Office has no funds at its disposal available for the relief of the families of the captive crew of the Nisero, he will make application to the Treasury for a reasonable sum for this purpose?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
I regret to inform my hon. Friend that it would be altogether contrary to precedent to make the application which he suggests.
