HC Deb 17 May 1915 vol 71 cc1966-7
13. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that the Allan Line Steamship Company have an assistant shore steward named Couroy engaged at Halifax, Nova Scotia; if he is aware that the steward in question is an Austrian by birth and an ex-officer of the Austrian army; if he is aware that he sleeps on board the ships of the company and superintends troop ships carrying troops from Canada; and if he intends taking any action in the matter?


Inquiries have failed to confirm the statement in the question. But if my hon. Friend has any information bearing on the matter I shall be glad to receive it.
