HC Deb 01 March 1887 vol 311 c886
SIR SAVILE CROSSLEY (Suffolk, Lowestoft)

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether the amount of damages to be paid by Her Majesty's Government to the owners of the fishing boat Skylark, during the last autumn fishing season in the North Sea, has yet been settled; and, whether the money due to the crew, on account of clothing and other necessaries lost, has yet been agreed upon and paid; and, if not, whether he will take steps to have it paid as soon as possible, to enable the men to proceed to sea and earn their living?


£200, the amount due to the crew of the Skylark for the loss of clothing and estimated profits, has been paid. The residue of the claim is in the course of settlement, and is being pushed forward as rapidly as possible.
