§ 11. Mr. FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that when His Majesty's ship "Fisgard II." was lost on 17th September last the crew and dock- 551 yard hands on board—that is, those who were saved—lost all their kit and possessions; and if it is proposed to give new kits, etc., to these men or to compensate them in money?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The crew and dockyard hands lost all the effects they had on board when His Majesty's ship "Fisgard II." was lost on 17th September last. The crew have received compensation in kind in respect of their regulation kits. The examination of their claims, and those of the dockyard hands, for personal effects lost is now nearly completed, and compensation will shortly be granted in money.
