HC Deb 06 August 1924 vol 176 cc2957-8W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether, as £367,000 of naval prize money remains unclaimed, he has published, or proposes to publish, the lists of those people entitled to it, so that they or their friends may be aware of what is due to them?


The question of publishing lists of the names of persons who have not yet claimed their shares in the Naval Prize Fund will be considered when the usual channels through which they can be traced have been exhausted. At present applications are still being received, and, wherever possible, the addresses of those who have anything due are being traced from official records. The amount outstanding includes shares due to ranks and ratings recruited overseas, and such sums as may have already been paid by the several Governments of oversea Dominions, etc., but not yet reclaimed by them.
