HC Deb 18 April 1911 vol 24 c623
Captain FABER

I desire to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty a question of which I have given him private notice—namely—whether a party of Marines was landed from His Majesty's Ship "Shearwater," on the 11th instant, at San Quentin, Mexico, and for what object; and whether he has any statement to make?


By the request of British and American subjects the "Shearwater" landed men for something under twenty-four hours, with the object of protecting lives and property at a time when Mexican officials were absent from San Quentin. A full report by letter is being forwarded.
