HC Deb 20 March 1912 vol 35 c2034W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in the case of the Crown's claim to the foreshore rights at Seaview, Isle of Wight, the replies to interrogatories have been received; and whether he can state when the case is likely to be heard?


The answer to the Crown's information and interrogatories was filed on 6th March. This answer is now under consideration, and certain of the documents referred to therein are being examined at the Record Office. The defendant's documents of title set out in the Schedule to the answer commence with the year 1350 and extend up to the year 1893, and a careful examination thereof will necessarily occupy some considerable time. It is impossible, therefore, for me at the present time to say when the case is likely to be heard.
