§ Mr. HARCOURT (by Private Notice)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can make any statement as to the loss by enemy action of a fishing vessel on the East Coast of Scotland?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
The only information received with regard to the loss of the fishing vessel in question is that she sank after an explosion, whether as the result of striking a mine or of torpedo attack has not yet been ascertained. I deeply regret that the crew of three are missing.
