HC Deb 17 February 1887 vol 310 c1768
ADMIRAL MAYNE (Pembroke and Haverfordwest)

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether any, and, if so, what, steps are being taken to obtain from the Treasury the proceeds of Naval mulcts, fines, unclaimed prize money, unclaimed deceased men's estates, and the sale of stock, in order that this money, properly belonging to the Royal Navy, may be appropriated to the carrying out of the scheme of pensions to widows of seamen and marines, as recommended by the Committee under the presidency of H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh?


Considerable financial difficulties have been experienced when endeavouring to give effect to the recommendations of the Duke of Edinburgh's Committee, and up to the present moment no satisfactory method of surmounting the difficulties has been arranged.
