HC Deb 23 July 1896 vol 43 cc481-2
MR. JAMES ROCHE (Galway, E.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade, whether, in view of the great public interest that is taken both in this country and South Africa in the recent Board of Trade Inquiry into the loss of the Drummond Castle, he will direct that the shorthand writer's notes, taken at the Inquiry and presented to the Court, be printed and circulated to the Members of this House?


The shorthand writer's notes of evidence taken at the Inquiry into the loss of the Drummond Castle are very voluminous, and could not be printed and circulated except at considerable expense, which, as at present advised, I am not prepared to authorise.
