HC Deb 21 March 1895 vol 31 c1556
MR. W. F. D. SMITH (Strand, Westminster)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the Government contemplate proposing any change in the law which now lays upon anyone picking up a corpse at sea the expense of interment?


The Government are not prepared to initiate legislation, but they will favourably consider any proposal in the direction indicated.
