§ LORD HUGH CECIL (Greenwich)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the attention of the Admiralty has been called to the case of Charles Bryant, who was injured while at work on H. M. S. Monarch; whether he was injured through the negligence of men in Government employ; whether the Admiralty are aware that He desires to bring an action at Law against those who caused his injury; and whether he has been hindered from doing so by the refusal of the names of those legally responsible?
§ MR. MACARTNEY
The case referred to has been before the Admiralty in 1894 and 1895. The Papers connected with it only came before me this morning, and, before giving a final answer to the noble Lord, I desire to have an opportunity of considering all the circumstances.
