HC Deb 10 April 1911 vol 24 cc200-1W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is now in a position to give the information asked for respecting the damage sustained by the Beer fishermen, and to state what compensation he is prepared to offer?


A report has been received of loss of pots belonging to one fisherman of Beer, and in the particular circumstances of the case the Admiralty are prepared to allow £1 11s. 6d. as an act of grace. I may add that it is not practicable to carry out target practice far out at sea, sheltered waters of suitable depth being necessary. The range off Beer Head is little used.
