§ * CAPTAIN BETHELL (York, E. R. Holderness)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty, whether it is the case that the compensation for loss of kit to the surviving officers and men of H.M.S. Victoria has not been yet fully paid, and what is the cause of the delay?
The final balances of compensation to the men were settled in May, 1894. Compensation on the then existing scale was made to officers in September and October, 1893, and a further compensation under the new regulations recently approved was made last month.
