39. Mr. Viant

asked the Postmaster- General whether he can give the reasons for the long delay by his Department in delivering the telegram despatched to Gosport on the occasion of the "Thetis" disaster?

Major Tryon

The question raised by the hon. Member is being inquired into by the Tribunal presided over by Mr. Justice Bucknill, and I do not think it would be appropriate for me to say anything on the matter at this stage, I have arranged for a full statement of the facts to be sent for the information of the Tribunal.
