asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Under what Estimate or Sub-head is to be found the sum of £20,000, either paid or to be paid the French Government as compensation to the owners of the passenger ship Ville de Vittoria, run down and sunk in Lisbon Harbour by Her Majesty's flag-ship Sultan, drowning part of the passengers and crew?


The sum in question was paid out of savings on Navy Votes of 1887–8.
