HC Deb 22 February 1905 vol 141 c890
SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether arrangements have been made to afford full protection to the fishing fleet on the Dogger Bank during the passage of the Russian third Baltic Fleet through the North Sea.

(Answered by Mr. A. J. Balfour.) His Majesty's Government place implicit reliance on the assurance given by the Russian Government that they have taken every precaution to guard against the recurrence of such incidents as that of 21st–22nd October, and that special instructions have been issued to the whole Russian Fleet with that object.
