HC Deb 06 December 1926 vol 200 c1665
58. Colonel DAY

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if his attention has been drawn to the letter addressed to the Treasury Solicitor's Department by Captain John Ball; whether he is aware that a valuable exhibit belonging to Captain Ball, and on loan to a museum without charge, has been seized by agents of the Official Receiver; and whether, in view of Captain Ball's service in the loyal Naval Air Service and the Royal Air Force, he will accede to the request of this ex-officer that the matter of dispute be settled by compromise?


I have been asked to reply. I am aware of the circumstances referred to in the first two parts of the question, but I regret that I am unable to accede to the request contained in the last part.
