HC Deb 12 November 1917 vol 99 cc38-9

asked when the salvage money will be distributed in respect of the salvaging of the liner ss. "Onitsha" on the West Coast of Africa some twelve months ago?


The award was made by the Court on the 10th May, 1917. The costs have to be taxed and other formalities gone through, and it was not until 9th August that we received from the other side the amount of the award, plus a sum for interest. The necessary steps having been taken for the allocation of the award in proportion to the services rendered, a notice was published in the "London Gazette" of the 2nd November that distribution would commence the next day.
