HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1484W

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?


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.
