§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR (Donegal, E.)
asked the President of the Board of Trade, If his attention has been called to the heroic conduct of several of the Islanders of Innistrahull, off the Coast of Donegal, on the occasion of the wreck of the schooner Leslie, of Glasgow, on Friday night last, the crew of which they rescued at the imminent peril of their own lives; and, whether he will consider the propriety of some recognition of their services?
§ THE PRESIDENT (Mr. MUNDELLA) (Sheffield, Brightside)
My attention has been called to the wreck of the Leslie on Friday last. I have caused inquiry to be instituted into the case, in order to ascertain the nature of the services rendered by the Islanders, with a view to deciding whether it is one in which some recognition should be given. I have not got the particulars.
