HC Deb 20 February 1911 vol 21 cc1547-8

May I ask a question of which I have given private notice: whether the right hon. Gentleman is aware that the derelict war- ship "Richelieu" was sighted yesterday 160 miles south-west of Queenstown, still afloat; and, if so, whether he will ask the Admiralty in view of the grave danger to navigation to take immediate steps to have this derelict located and sunk?


I have no official information, and will be glad if the hon. Member will communicate to me any which he has. I shall certainly make immediate inquiry.
