HC Deb 08 July 1907 vol 177 c1148
MR. LAYLAND-BARRATT (Devonshire, Torquay)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the wreck of torpedo boat 99, which sank in the English Channel oft' Berry Head, lies in the fishing grounds over which the Brixham fishery fleet work, and is a source of danger to the trawling gear employed; and if the Admiralty will take steps to have the wreck efficiently buoyed and to have it raised or removed as soon as practicable.


A diving party has left Portsmouth to examine the wreck of the torpedo boat, and the future action must depend on the result of this examination.
