HC Deb 04 August 1909 vol 8 cc1836-7

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he could give any information with regard to the accident on H.M.S. "Temeraire" on Saturday, 31st ultimo, at the Naval Review, and the conditions of the sufferers; whether the accident was due to any defect in the gun; and whether similar mishaps are preventible in future?


No official report of the inquiry which was ordered has yet been received, and I regret, therefore, that I am unable as yet to make any statement as to the cause of the accident.
