§ Major ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
asked the right hon. Gentleman whether he can now state the result of his inquiries with regard to the loss of the fishing-nets of skipper David Parker, of Cellardyke; whether, seeing that Parker's whole means of livelihood had been destroyed, he will favourably consider this claim as soon as possible; and whether he will compensate Parker for the loss of his time during his deprivation as well as for the actual value of the nets, etc., destroyed?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The necessary inquiries are not quite completed, but it is hoped that it may be possible to furnish Mr. Parker with a favourable reply in the course of a few days.
