§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if he will ascertain why the commander of H.M.S. "Cæsar" failed to reply to a letter, dated the 6th February last, from the clerk to the Roskeen Parish Council, representing that a young girl residing at Saltburn, Ross-shire, had been seriously injured by gunners from H.M.S. "Cæsar" during gun-practice last summer; and will he state why the letter was not submitted to the Board of Admiralty with a Report thereon.
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. LAMBERT, Devonshire, South Molton)
No letter dated 6th February last from the clerk of the Roskeen Parish Council can be traced as having been received by H.M.S. "Cæsar."
