HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 c91W
119. Mr. Hale

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is prepared to consider the question of making compassionate grants to the relatives of men who lost their lives in the submarine "Thetis."

Mr. Dugdale

No, Sir. The dependants of those who lost their lives have been eligible for pensions or allowances on the scales provided under the Naval Pensions Regulations or Injury Warrants, or for compensation as provided in the Workmen's Compensation Acts. Pensions and allowances from naval funds have been continuously in payment since the disaster to those entitled to compensation from the Admiralty. In addition, a considerable Fund was subscribed by the public, from which substantial additional allowances have been paid, and are still being paid.
