HC Deb 29 July 1924 vol 176 c1865

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is prepared to give special consideration to the reparation claims of seamen which became belated owing to their continual absence on service abroad or which have been rejected through failure of claimants to answer requests for further information which did not reach them owing to absence at sea?


Very special consideration was given by the Royal Commission to claims by seamen and their dependents, as is shown by paragraph 14 of the Final Report of the Commission. All belated claims will now receive the most careful consideration in connection with the £300,600 provided for solatia to belated claimants.
