§ MR. BROADHURST (Nottingham, W.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether any decision has yet been arrived at with regard to the suitable acknowledgment of the bravery exhibited by the Lowestoft fishermen in saving life in the North Sea on 13th December last, which he has already promised to consider?
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS BEACH
Yes, Sir; a silver medal for gallantry has been awarded to the skipper and a bronze medal and £2 to the third hand in the case alluded to by the hon. Member. The Board of Trade have also offered to pay for the boat lost and to defray any expenses incurred for the subsistence of the rescued crew.
