HC Deb 31 July 1934 vol 292 c2461

(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Turkish Government are prepared to pay any compensation in respect of the recent occurrence off the Turkish coast when British officers were fired on and a British officer killed?


Yes, Sir. The Turkish Government have of their own initiative expressed a desire to make a voluntary payment to the relatives of the late Surgeon-Lieutenant Robinson. The compensation amounts to £2,000, and I understand that this sum has already been paid.
