HC Deb 31 July 1912 vol 41 c2079W

asked the President of the Board of Trade the reasons why the Board of Trade took no steps to inquire into the case of Mr. Morgan, late second mate of the s.s. "Glenfinlas," when he was sent home from abroad and immediately placed in a lunatic asylum; and why the Board has refused assistance to the widow?


In the case referred to by the Noble Lord, full inquiries were at once instituted by the Board of Trade. It was found, however, that in the circumstances there was no action which the Board could take which would have been of any assistance to Mrs. Morgan.
