HC Deb 28 March 1962 vol 656 c117W
51. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement about the grounding and refloating on the coast of Cork of the Aberdeen-registered steamship "Hadrian Coast".

Mr. Marples

The "Hadrian Coast" went aground off Monkstown Bay on 9th March in thick fog with a pilot on board. The vessel was refloated on 20th March. No one was injured and the vessel was apparently undamaged. I do not propose to order an inquiry under the Merchant Shipping Acts.
