HC Deb 28 February 1901 vol 90 c25
MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been directed to the case of the late George Kerr, a member of the dock police of Cape Town, who died early last year, and is believed to have left property undisposed of in Cape Town; whether he is aware that the police authorities at Cape Town realised the property referred to and sent to his relatives in Ireland as the result a sum of about £19; and can he state by what right the police authorities so acted, and whether there is now any means of ascertaining if the sum mentioned represented the whole value of the estate.


I have no information on the matter, which appears to be one entirely for the consideration and decision, of the Cape Government.
