HC Deb 05 May 1952 vol 500 c7W
Brigadier Clarke

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how much money belonging to the Naval Prize Fund remains undistributed; and what the balance is expected to be after distribution is completed.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

£550,000 and about £450,000 respectively. The Royal Naval Prize Fund was closed to fresh applications on 26th August, 1951, but payment has still to be made in certain cases where unclaimed sums are due to the estates of deceased persons, to insane persons and to certain categories where similar difficulties exist.
