HC Deb 01 March 1911 vol 22 c349
Captain PEEL

asked if the right hon. Gentleman would cause inquiry to be made into the facts concerning the destroyer "Maori," which caused a man to lose his life by being washed off the barge "Petrel" on 8th February at the Nore, and as to the second destroyer (name unknown) which steamed by and rendered no assistance; and whether the Admiralty will cause some compensation to be given to the man's family?


A full inquiry is being made into the facts alleged in the hon. Member's question. No claim for compensation has yet been received, but should it appear that the Admiralty is liable, compensation will be paid.
