§ * LORD HUGH CECIL (Greenwich)
; I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty, whether his attention has been called to the case of Stephen Keen, sometime in the employ of the Government; and, whether, under the circumstances of the case, he can see his way to recommend Keen for an increase of pension?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. W. E. MACARTNEY,) Antrim, S.
My attention has been called to this case, which has been on several occasions considered by the Admiralty. I regret that I am unable, after careful inquiry into the circumstances, to recommend Mr. Keen for any increase of pension.
