HC Deb 01 March 1912 vol 34 c1792W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the sunken wreck which has recently caused an injury to the s.s. "Olympic" is still a possible cause of danger to ocean-going vessels; and whether steps are being taken to warn vessels of the dangers and to blow up the sunken wreck, or otherwise free the sea from this danger?


The Board of Trade are informed by Messrs. Ismay, Imrie, and Company that the report that the s.s. "Olympic" struck a sunken wreck is devoid of any foundation, though it is the case that she lost a blade of her propeller in the course of her last voyage homeward.
