§ General McCALMONT
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the normal precautions for saving of life adopted on the Royal Mail steamer "Leinster" previous to the torpedo attack upon her come within the scope of the Admiralty inquiry into the disaster?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
No, Sir; the matter is one for the Board of Trade. But, of course, here, as elsewhere, if in the course of the examination of the Reports which would come to us it appeared necessary to refer any matter to the Board of Trade, we should so refer it.
