68. Mr. FRED HALL
asked how many counsel, in addition to the Law Officers, were engaged on behalf of the Government in connection with the inquiry into the "Titanic" disaster, their names, and the amounts received by them in respect of their services?
§ Mr. GULLAND
The information desired by the hon. Member is contained in the Statement of Expenses of the "Titanic" Inquiry printed in the Votes in answer to a question asked by the hon. Member for Sutherland on 17th December last, of which my right hon. Friend is sending the hon. Member a copy.
§ 73. Mr. J. P. FARRELL
asked whether the American Congress appropriated funds to allow a Grant of 2,000 dollars each to be made to the relatives and survivors of American sea-going postal officials drowned in the "Titanic;" that the British Treasury only granted a sum of £165 for the loss of James B. Williamson to his widowed mother and sisters depending on her at Dublin; whether the right hon. Gentleman has supported a claim for a further amount equal at least to the American sum to this poor woman; and, if not, will he now do so?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I regret that it is not possible to take any further steps in this matter such as the hon. Member suggests. I understand that an award from the "Titanic" Relief Fund has been made to Mrs. Williamson of 10s. a week for life.
