HC Deb 22 March 1910 vol 15 cc947-8
Mr. BURGOYNE (for Lord Charles Beresford)

asked whether it is the intention of the Admiralty to grant, prize money to those officers and men who took part in the capture of the four Chinese destroyers on 17th January, 1900?


The question of taking steps for the award of prize bounty on account of the captures referred to was fully considered in the spring of 1901 by Lord Selborne's Board, and the decision was that no such action should be taken.


Is it the intention of the Admiralty to alter the policy of giving prize money in the case of a capture of that sort?


No, Sir; the Admiralty have no intention of altering the decision come to by Lord Selborne's Board in 1901.
