HC Deb 24 May 1916 vol 82 c2121W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in view of the fact that the steamship "Appam" arrived in Hampton Roads as far back as 17th January in charge of a German prize crew, whether he can make any statement on the subject, and whether any decision has been reached by the United States Courts?


A suit brought by the owners to recover possession of the vessel is now before the United States Courts, and a decision is, I believe, expected in a few days.
